I'm Dr. Jeffrey Hodgson. This is a picture of me when I was young --just out of the Canadian Armed Forces Medical Corps --Oakland, California (circa 1990). Back then we got through an earthquake, a firestorm, and a drug war that shaped much of who I am today.
Academic degrees in biology, chemistry, medicine and anesthesiology have added their years but I'm still the same crooked-eyed kid trying to do right.
In 2014 I relocated my medical practice from the operating room to the community in hopes of a more rewarding practice helping people minimize the physical problems they cause themselves rather than making my living on the end-result of those mistakes. This is the spirit of Lifestyle Solutions and there is one priority: the patient-doctor relationship. Everything is arranged to optimize that relationship in way most convenient to the patient.
This is healthcare the way used to be. Designed by a doctor, delivered by a doctor and directed by a doctor. But with the technical advantages that have come along since that time, it can be even better.
I hope you agree.
Jeffrey R Hodgson, MD
