So you must be wondering what Delight Primary Care is all about.
Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Degha Fongod MD but you an address me as Dr D. I was born in Washington DC and grew up in Cameroon, West Africa and Washington DC. While I was in Cameroon I suffered from severe asthma and spent a lot of time in a hospital or healthcare setting. After these experiences I decided I wanted to be a doctor. During my medical education, I determined that I wanted to focus on preventative medicine and that led me to my specialization in Internal Medicine.
After completing my medical training, I was excited to start my new job of taking care of patients. However when I started working I noticed cracks in our healthcare system. I had very limited time with my patients, which made it difficult to fully understand the scope of their problems. I was also encumbered with endless amount of paperwork, which was not related to patient health.
This is not how I want to practice medicine, I thought. So when the opportunity arose for me to start over, I decided I would start a medical practice that would focus on accessibility and personalized healthcare. That’s how Delight Primary Care was birth.
I want Delight Primary Care to be a family where all types of patients are accepted. Do you need help with your weight? Are you looking for ways to take fewer medications? Or do you just want to have access to your doctor via text, call or videocall? If you want to take an active role in your healthcare and need someone to help guide you with this, come join the Delight Primary Care family.
Health is Wealth!!!!
