Why did you become a family doctor?
I have loved the idea of participating in the healing of the others from a very young age. As a young kid I had rheumatic fever (oh how awful that elbow pain!).
During that time I was under the watchful eye of a very warm and caring family doctor, Dr. Snelling. He saw me often, even in my home, giving support to me and my parents. He became my ideal of the "people helper" that I wanted to become. They probably modeled the TV series "Marcus Wellby, M.D." after him!
I carry a bunch of his energy inside me ‘til this day.
Goal of Practice
The major interest and emphasis of my practice over the last 36 years has been on the proactive and preventive side of medicine whether that is the physical, or emotional issues, that determine "wellness."
I have found this type of medicine, delivered in the context of Family Medicine, to be most satisfying to me personally. I believe that it has made a difference along the way.
To give care to my patients over this long period of time, going through the hard times as well as the joyful times has been a privilege and a most fulfilling life experience.
We, both my husband and I, feel that Dr. Hudson always does everything in his power to take care of every medical need and concern. He will always see us quickly and has answered the few after hour calls we have needed to make. These two things are so important to us. We feel fortunate to be able to participate in this type of service since we are both getting older!
Concierge Medicine Philosophy & Approach
We believe that medicine today should focus on prevention, early detection, wellness, direct patient care and spending dedicated time with patients. These are the tenets of concierge medicine. After years of private practice, physicians who transition to concierge medicine get to return to giving patients the type of care they envisioned when entering medical school. Learn More
