Ana Danielyan, M.D., on staff at Premier Medical since 2008, has a passion for working with patients and helping them stay well.
"I used to practice hospital medicine as a hospitalist, but I really missed the long-term physician-patient relationship and I decided to go into primary care," said Dr. Danielyan, who specializes in patients over age 17.
Danielyan is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and received her medical degree from Yerevan State Medical University in Armenia. She completed her training at St. Luke's Hospital, where she worked as a hospitalist for several years.
Danielyan's practice offers physicals, general wellness services, pre-operative screenings, EKGs and disease management for chronic conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes and weight issues. She is fluent in English, Russian and Armenian.
One of the many ways the health care field has changed is in the education of patients.
"You see more and more patients who are educated about their disease management, which I encourage," Danielyan said. "I like when patients ask questions and are involved in their care."
Danielyan follows her patients while they are in the hospital and visits patients in nursing homes.
"Being in primary care, you really start caring about your patients' health," she said. "You know how important it is to treat them when they 'feel healthy' before they become sick."
Danielyan is on the medical staff at St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital and St. Luke's Hospital in Chesterfield, MO. She accepts new patients and makes evening and same-day appointments available. Her office accepts most insurance plans.
