Daniel J. Sanchez, MD

Specialty: Family Medicine

Bio:

Dr. Daniel Sanchez is a family medicine physician. He joined the staff at Rooks County Health Center in 1993. He enjoys preventive medicine — fixing risk factors before they cause problems.

He lives in Plainville with his wife, Karen, and their two children.

Education:

  • Residency: Family Medicine at Saint Joseph Hospital; 1993
  • Doctorate of Medicine: Loma Linda University; 1990
  • Bachelor of Arts in Theology/Chemistry Minor: Union College; 1986

Statement:

During medical training, I liked a bit of everything I did and Family Medicine became a very logical choice.  To follow a patient over many years, often treating generations of the same family, gives many insights into a person’s make-up–physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. 

I once asked a friend’s dad who was a general practitioner (the term used in that day) what his favorite part of medicine was and he told me preventative medicine.  I asked him what that meant and he said it was about helping people become and stay healthy so they wouldn’t get sick.  “Boring!” I thought.  I wanted to save lives, remove disease and do heroic things.

Now I understand.  We can really abuse our health and then bring our broken bodies for a doctor to try and heal, but how much better to take care of it in the first place and maintain it in good working order.  I understand my mentor’s line of thinking. 

My medical school’s motto is, “To Make Man Whole”.  That is my deepest desire, to restore the whole person to his or her greatest potential and maintain the highest quality of life possible.
