My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness…

I have strived to create a practice environment that is unhurried, friendly and comfortable where my patients feel welcome and never rushed. My practice style has always been to try to provide comprehensive medical care to my patients by listening to all of their concerns while demonstrating compassion and patience. Ten years ago, the US healthcare system was declared “broken” and it has not improved. Fixes that are needed have not materialized. Premiums are increasing and the hassles for both patients and physicians keep rising. We all know how medicine should be. I invite you to see how medicine can be and is being practiced everyday at my office.

From the Jays to the KC Chiefs for Dr. Michael Monaco

By The News Tribune | Circa September 16th, 2013 Dr. Michael Monaco has moved to the sidelines from his high school football career many years ago.But that’s not all that’s changed. Monaco’s focus also has shifted from winning games to keeping players in good health.Monaco, a former captain of the Jefferson City High School Jays football team, is in his 19th season as team physician for the Kansas City Chiefs, caring for players on the sidelines and on the road all season long.”I’ve seen the good, the bad and hopefully the good again,”Âť Monaco said. “It’s been a great, fun career to have.”ÂťMonaco, who graduated from Jefferson City High School in 1980, said he became the team physician in 1994, after being asked to take on the responsibility a second time. He said he was offered the job in 1991, but turned it down because of financial reasons and other responsibilities. When the job was offered again, Monaco said he was happy to be able to take it.As team physician, Monaco said his job is to make sure the Chiefs players are safe to play.”We deal with all their health problems,”Âť Monaco said. “On game day … make sure they don’t get dehydrated … we’re also on the sidelines.”ÂťFrom being poked in the eye to any potential neurological issues, Monaco treats and examines the players, whether it’s at their home stadium or on the road.Being on the road, Monaco traveled quite a bit while his two children were growing up. But though he may have been gone some times, he said his children enjoyed Monaco’s job as team physician.”It’s a double-edged sword,”Âť Monaco said.
