Dr. Diane Aslanis believes that modern medicine could learn a few things from the past. Her recently opened practice on Fourth Street in Farmville is modeled after the one-on-one doctor/patient relationship common in days gone by. Dr. Aslanis is possibly the only doctor in town who answers her own phone.
“That’s the way it used to be, and that’s what I want,” Dr. Aslanis stated. “It’s an old-fashioned personalized kind of health care. I like personalized care. With me, you really don’t go through a third party — I answer the phone.” Thursday, December 19, 2013
