“Medicine has always been a passion for me. My father was a physician and I often accompanied him on his home visits to patients. Seeing him do so much to help people made me want to be a physician too,” she recalls.
Dr. Javlekar has been practicing internal medicine in Central Massachusetts for over eighteen years. As an internist, Dr. Javlekar helps her patients take charge of their heath by empowering them through education and involving them in collaborative decision making, emphasizing prevention and healthy lifestyle habits.
Dr. Javlekar has noted, "Patients are more informed now because of the Internet. They come in with unique questions. This makes effective communication more important than ever in helping patients feel confident that they will receive the right treatment along with high quality care.”
