For starters, the doctor allows more time for each
visit than is common for the profession. Each new patient spends upwards of an hour
with the doctor so that the current set of symptoms and
their evolution in the patient can all be thoroughly
assessed and explored. The patient's past medical and social
history is considered, risk factors for future disease are
assessed and ultimately the presenting complaint is
diagnosed and treated.
The treatment may be as simple as
recommending a specific set of exercises, prescribing a
medicine or as involved as obtaining imaging studies and
arranging follow-up with local specialists. Dr. Boguslavsky
is on staff at Somerset Medical Center where he follows his
patients ill enough to be hospitalized.
Each follow-up appointment is allotted a
half hour with the doctor, which allows for further
assessment of the patient's response to treatment, and
further modifications are made to the treatment plan. An
amazing thing happens when a physician is able to devote the
necessary time to each patient!
Our Use of Technology
Despite practicing 3000 year old art of medical
acupuncture, we are innovators in the field of medical informatics,
and we are at the forefront of medical technology. We have a
completely paperless medical records system that helps us
eliminate chart losses, and lets us stay abreast of the latest
We generate electronic orders for bloodwork.
Results get imported into electronic medical charts and
never get lost. Every lab value is reviewed by the
doctor and the patients are notified of the results as
soon as we get them. We have a reminder system to let us
know when the patient is due to repeat tests and
bloodwork. This helps us make sure that our patients
stay on track with their preventative care.
Our medication cross-checking system adds an extra layer
of safety and protection from medication interactions
errors. We take advantage of electronic
This is much better for the
patients as there are no scripts to lose and the patient can
usually head from our office straight to the pharmacy where
their medications are already waiting for them.
Dr. Boguslavsky sees a broad spectrum or
patients and illnesses. From seeing newborns to
septuagenarians, from managing acute sinus infection to
helping a patient with chronic congestive heart failure,
he is always there for his patients and their families.

Two other areas that set our practice apart - we follow
our patients into the hospital and pay house calls on
When our patients are sick enough to be
admitted into the hospital we coordinate care among the
coterie of specialists and make sure that everyone is on
the same page.
We work with a local midwife to make sure that the
babies she delivers at home are seen by a doctor within
a few days after their delivery. This is especially
appreciated by a recovering new mom, and decreases the
exposure of that newborn to the sick people commonly
present in the waiting room of a doctor's office. We
will also pay a visit to a patient too sick to make it
into the office.
While we don't do any obstetrical or gynecologic care,
we have established relationships with local area
physicians to whom we refer our patients.
