DeKalb Medical Physicians Group: Oak Grove Family Medicine


>>Katie Humphries: I’m Katie Humphries,
I’m a family medicine practitioner here at Oak Grove Family Medicine. I’m really
lucky to have two great partners here. We have Dr. Scott Ramshur, who’s been here
the longest of the three of us, and Dr. Ramshur does full-range family medicine. He sees children
all the way through adults, and some geriatrics as well. He has a very light-hearted personality,
but is very preventive focused.>>Scott Ramshur: One of the things that drew
me to DeKalb Medical was the emphasis on quality of care, rather than quantity of care. I don’t
feel any pressure to feel like I have to see a patient every ten minutes, I feel like I
can actually sit and talk with the patient. And not just touch on the main reason they’ve
come in, to see if they have any other issues they want to discuss.>>KH: And then we have Dr. Cohen, and he
is a complementary and alternative medicine specialist as well, so he’ll be combining
traditional family medicine with a complementary and alternative approach.>>Zachary Cohen: I see patients of all ages
and types, and I particularly enjoy practicing preventative medicine and helping people manage
chronic conditions in a natural way. I think the integrated medicine piece is very unique,
and I think it applies well to family medicine. We take into account the whole patient, mind,
body, and spirit and we use all the appropriate modalities whether they are conventional or
whether they are considered complimentary or alternative.>>KH: We really are the true essence of family
medicine. We see families from their kids all the way through the grandparents, and
sometimes even the great-grandparents. This is such a great community to be a physician
in. It never fails, I always see one of my patients in one of the settings in the neighborhood,
and it’s so nice to be a part of the community in that way.>>SR: When I joined this practice, I didn’t
always know that this would be the practice I’d be at until I retired. I’m not sure
I thought that far ahead, but after being here for eight years, I can’t imagine being
anywhere else.>>ZC: Working at Oak Grove Family Medicine
is nice, because you have the community feeling where you’re serving a small community with
two other doctors, but you also have access to the DeKalb Medical system, and everything
it has to offer.>>KH: Our focus on patient care begins from
the very first phone call that the patient makes. From the way that they’re greeted,
to the ease of scheduling appointments, to the way they are cared for by the medical
assistance, to the physician care, we want the patients to have the best experience possible,
and to have all of their needs met.
