“I was always fascinated by the scientific complexity and diversity of internal medicine, which requires extensive knowledge of the entire human organism. Today, I most enjoy helping healthy people stay healthy and helping ill people get healthy again.

“My philosophical focus is on being proactive about preventive medicine. It’s about better health through wellness planning. My patients have easy and immediate access to me any time for medical guidance without delay. Our mission is to provide state-of-the-art medical care in a personalized, punctual, unhurried and respectful manner. In other words, the best healthcare available, with no compromises or excuses. Because that’s what you deserve.”

“Internal medicine and preventive medicine are the most interesting and academically challenging specialties, which involve extensive direct patient contact. There’s an ongoing need to attend medical conferences and keep up-to-date with the latest medical research and clinical guidelines. I enjoy the direct face-to-face contact with our patients.

“Ideally, I like to educate patients about the best approach to screening for disease, assessing risk and implementing rapid and appropriate intervention to reduce risk and provide early treatment once disease is discovered. I aim to give my patients my undivided attention for all their medical needs with easy access to care and coordination of referrals to specialists and medical centers when necessary.

“As part of a concierge practice, I have unlimited time to spend with patients so I can provide them with the most attentive and innovative medical practice available. This is my passion in life!”

Dr. West also enjoys spending time with his wife and two children. When his schedule allows, he loves to explore Australia.

“I like the diversity of patients, from young ages to great-grandparents. The complexity and variety of medical issues mean that I get to learn something with my patients every day. In addition, I love the opportunity to teach my patients to help them take more ownership of their health. The diversity of healthcare also requires a level of lifelong learning that we must continue if we are to provide quality care for our patients. Every year, I spend hundreds of hours reading and attending conferences to make sure I am providing the most up-to-date information for my patients. This keeps it interesting and exciting.

“My philosophy is to always treat my patients the way I want to be treated. I like to remind them that I work for them, and while I may not always tell them what they want to hear, I will always tell them what I would want to hear if our positions were reversed. This exchange of information can also best be done in an environment of mutual respect and support, which we work hard to maintain in our office.”

In his spare time, Dr. Oakes-Lottridge enjoys physical activities of almost any kind: biking, running, hiking and sailing with his wife and four children – even though the kids outpace him. He also enjoys traveling with his family and “staycations” at his home in Fort Myers.
