DR. PAPANICOLAOU, DIRECTOR OF CORNERSTONE FAMILY PRACTICE
“Medicine is the art of wellness best practiced with doctor and patient together holding the brush to the canvas.”
I am a family physician affectionately called “Dr. George” by my patients. I take care of newborns to grandparents and have been doing so in my practice on the North Shore for 18 years. In fact I have helped raise a generation. It’s not unusual for me to perform a college physical for teens I have cared for since they were born. At their graduations I sit next to parents who trusted me to care for them. That’s cool. You can learn a lot in a generation.
