Personal Medicine of Rochester welcomes physician

Personal Medicine of Rochester has announced that physician James Budd will join the practice Aug. 1 and is currently accepting new patient inquiries . Personal Medicine of Rochester’s goal is to provide person-centered physician care to members of the greater Rochester community, with a focus on wellness and prevention. The new personalized primary care practice will offer an annual membership with convenient access to same-day or next-day appointments with a physician, as well as comprehensive personal wellness plans customized to each patient’s individual needs.

Budd received his medical degree from University of Chicago. He completed his internship and residency at the University of Rochester School of Medicine in internal medicine as well as fellowships in clinical hematology and academic internal medicine. He is board-certified in internal medicine and hematology. He has been serving patients since 1982.

“Patients need time to tell their story to their doctor—in their own words, sharing their personal journey, their unique psychosocial situation, medical concerns, and goals, he says. “This allows us to collaborate in the development of a personalized plan for prevention, wellness, and a productive, happy life.”
