Graybill’s growth has no effect on its neighborhood doctor feel
Quality medical care for every member of your family is literally just around the corner. With several offices throughout North County offering morning and evening hours and Urgent Care, Graybill Medical Group has you covered.
“We strive to cater to the needs of each patient base,” said Dr. Linden Burzell, lead physician of Graybill’s North Coastal Region with offices in Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista and the Tri-City area.
With a talented and multi-lingual team of doctors, physician assistants, nurses and support staff, Graybill Medical Group is available to help every member of every family.
Perhaps the most telling testimonial is the fact that there are many patients who make Graybill Medical a family affair. “We provide care to a lot of younger families and we also have a good population of geriatric patients who have been with their Graybill doctors for many years,” Dr. Burzell said. “In many cases we also take care of their children, grandchildren and extended families.”
With an emphasis on family medicine and pediatrics, Graybill’s North Coastal Region offers walk-in and same day appointments and has doctors available by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week in addition to their extended daily hours and Urgent Care services.
“We’re very accessible,” Dr. Burzell said. “Life happens, and our patients need to know we’re available to them when they need us.”
Patients requiring specialist care can rest easy that Graybill Medical Group will help them receive the services they need.
“If one of our patients requires specialist care, we can refer them to any number of nearby specialists,” Dr. Burzell said. “We also do an array of minor procedures in office sometimes eliminating the need to wait to see a specialist.”
The family-friendly atmosphere at Graybill Medical Group shouldn’t belie its ability to keep up to date with the latest advances in technology. The Oceanside office is about to become the third Graybill location to install digital radiology (the others are Escondido and Fallbrook). “The benefits of going digital are enormous,” Dr. Burzell said. “Our physicians will be able to see an image on their desktop computer within minutes. Not only does digital radiology gives us better images for evaluating health issues, it is also more convenient for our patients in terms of their time.”
In addition to the Urgent Care, family medicine and pediatrics provided by its North Coastal Region, Graybill also provides care in the areas of internal medicine, OB/GYN, sports medicine, radiology, physical therapy, ear nose and throat, general surgery, optometry and ophthalmology, and even medical aesthetics.
Those who enrolled in Covered California in time for the recent deadline will be pleased to hear that Graybill Medical Group accepts several of the Covered California plans, including the Sharp HMO and Blue Cross plans. Dr. Burzell advises patients with a Covered California plan to verify their coverage in advance.
Additionally Graybill accepts most major health plans plus Medicare, Medicare Advantage PPO and Medicare Advantage HMO (through United Healthcare).
Graybill strives to stand out by offering personalized attention to every patient. “We started out 80 years ago as a neighborhood family practice in Escondido and although we’ve grown, we still want people to know we’re committed to their families and communities,” Dr. Burzell said. “Our philosophy is ‘Personalized Healthcare for All Generations’ and that’s very apt.”
Dr. Burzell describes the atmosphere at Graybill Medical Group as “a good mix of youth, energy and experience.” He cited as an example Dr. Mary Cueva, who works out of the Tri-City Office and is a past president and acting board member of the Academy of Family Practice in San Diego County. “Working beside her is our newest team member, Dr. Jenny Luu, who was the Chief Medical Officer for the San Diego American Indian Health Center and a graduate of Temple University Medical School,” Dr. Burzell said. “Both are board certified in Family Medicine and eager to provide their respective patients with high quality medical care.”
