Aaron Boyd Galbraith, MD, is a board-certified internal medicine physician seeing patients at the Vista Physician Group’s Gurnee location. Dr. Galbraith has more than 5 years of experience caring for patients with common chronic conditions like diabetes, arthritis, and hypertension (high blood pressure) to more complex conditions like atrial fibrillation, COPD, cardiovascular disease, depression and anxiety, and memory issues.
Dr. Galbraith works in partnership with his patients to find individualized treatment plans that best fit their values and goals. “I do not see my patients as their medical conditions, but as individuals with full lives. I strive to help them live their lives to the fullest by maximizing preventative care and lifestyle management first and then using medical treatments as a secondary tool when appropriate,” he says.
Dr. Galbraith understands that the healthcare can sometimes feel overwhelming, confusing, and scary, but he aims to minimize and simplify these aspects as much as possible. His goal is to empower his patients to be in charge of their healthcare decisions by educating and informing them based on the most current knowledge and information available.
