Doctor’s offices are certainly operating differently these days, but the two medical practices of David Boguslavsky, MD—PremierMD and Premier Medical Acupuncture—have actually been offering telemedicine and other alternative medical options since long before the COVID-19 outbreak.
An experienced and dedicated family physician, David is also a medical acupuncturist who has been practicing medicine for more than a decade. After receiving his medical degree from Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and completing his residency training at Somerset Family Practice—where he was presented with multiple Resident Teacher of The Year awards—David underwent extensive additional training in Medical Acupuncture at the prestigious UCLA Helms Medical Acupuncture Institute in Berkley, California. He is Board Certified in both Family Medicine and in Medical Acupuncture.
The practices offer a full spectrum of family medicine and David sees his patients for acute illness, such as headaches and sinus infections, as well as for chronic condition management: thyroid, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, etc. Additionally, he specializes in treating patients with pain and functional disorders.
Born in Russia, it was David’s life long dream to follow in the footsteps of his grandparents who were both doctors. He was always interested in combining various approaches because David believes that one approach does not fit every patient and that they benefit from having multiple options available.
David says, “Whatever is best for the patient, is best for me.”
He offers a unique dual perspective, offered by his training in both Western and Eastern Medicine. Some patients leave their visit with a prescription for medication; whereas others leave reassured, and improved with some Chinese Herbal Medicines or a few well-chosen acupuncture needles.
Placing an emphasis on the practice of preventative care, David takes great care to control risk factors, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and diet-related imbalances. The practices accept most insurances and work with all patients, insured or not, to provide affordable medical care of the highest quality to each and every person.
David also runs an efficient and technologically modern medical practice built on a foundation of the time-honored tradition of compassionate care for each individual patient and their unique condition. He first began offering telemedicine last year as a way to improve the patient experience. This has proved particularly crucial during the COVID-19 outbreak. Unlike some other medical practices, David did not have to scramble to learn how to effectively implement telemedicine. Knowing that he needed to pivot and adapt to meet the current medical demands, David also currently offers curbside testing. This ease of testing helps to keep our community members #BridgewaterSTRONG.
The long-term plan is for the practices to keep growing as more and more patients are seeking alternative treatment methods, but not past the point of being able to offer quality, personalized care.
“I know all of my patients,” explains David. “We are still a small family practice with no plans to be acquired. I never want to lessen my level of care. My patients have incredible access to me. They even have my cell phone number.”
David never runs short on time or compassion. Every patient gets all the time needed for a full therapeutic evaluation and intervention.
