About Dana Chortkoff, MD

I became a physician to get to know other people in a personal way, to challenge myself intellectually and to feel rewarded for providing something that positively affects others. I believe in being honest and open with patients regarding both their physical and emotional health. I spend time getting to know my patients and feel that good medical care involves knowledge, listening and teaching. I treat patients the same way I'd want to be treated. I try to help them feel comfortable sharing their concerns and to feel safe and cared for. When I am not working, I love being outdoors — hiking, biking, swimming, gardening and walking my puppies. I also enjoy spending time with my family and attending local theater productions.

I had an awful experience with the Dr. I will be changing my OB for my future appts. I felt her bedside manner was terrible. I did not feel that she cared about me as an individual. I was just another number.
