Within 2 months of graduating from medical school, Dr. Choksi was involved in a motorcycle accident resulting in multiple pelvic fractures and a dislocated shoulder. Before he had a chance to treat his own first patient, Dr. Choksi himself became a patient. It was during this time he became very aware of how his own physical injuries, emotional trauma and his inability to work can change one’s life. Because of the great medical care he received during his own treatment period, he was able to complete his medical training. Likewise, it was this experience that further helped him become a more compassionate, and understanding physician.
FIRST CLASS HEALTHCARE, FAST! ® is our commitment to you. Using modern medical science and technological advancements, to compassionately, respectfully and promptly deliver the most current standards of medical care to our injured patients.
At Jet Medical Center ® we understand and take serious the concept of “going green” and are committed to improving the environment while we focus on your healthcare and help you get well. One large way is by reducing paper consumption and utilizing electronic medical records (EMR). This way we have a more secure, convenient and paper-free method of managing health records. We also have a completely paper-free fax system. That’s right, EVERY fax we receive is automatically converted and stored as an electronic document. These documents are then electronically separated (with an accuracy rate of greater than 99%) into the appropriate digital charts for our providers to review.
Do you have stacks of paper records from your previous physicians and / or hospitals that you would like for us to review and merge into your current electronic chart at Jet Medical Center ®? We can do that too! Simply bring in or better yet, fax us those records and we’ll take care of the rest – at no charge to you. Likewise, we encourage all of our patients to take advantage of the patient portal. New patients can save time and paper by completing intake forms online while existing patients can access a whole host of features including requesting prescription refills, scheduling appointments and more. At Jet Medical Center ® our goal is help you get better, while we also do our part by helping the environment.Top
