Fran A. Ganz-Lord, M.D.
I went into internal medicine because I wanted to care for patients with a variety of medical problems, but also because of thespecial relationship that internists can have with their patients. I have the honor of knowing very intimate details about a patient's life and am charged with making sure that not only do they get the best care possible, but that they get the best care for their life and their choices.
