Just about everyone seems to be in a hurry these days. But you won't find that to be case with family practitioner Lynn Napoli, M.D. Dr. Napoli believes in taking time to listen to her patients. She knows that small details can be very important and make a big difference in getting the right diagnosis and treatment.
"I like family medicine because it is the first step for patients who may need further care," Dr. Napoli says. "I see myself as my patients' advocate, so communication and education are important to me. I find taking the time to understand my patients' needs is personally rewarding - and it is just better medicine."
Away from her practice, Dr. Napoli is very involved in her three children's lives. She has been a room mom, team mom and Brownie leader, and she has led the summer camp at her church. Her personal interests also include physical fitness, dancing, art and music.
