Guiding Principle

“Medicine is the art of knowing the science
and treating the patients,
and not just their diseases.”

Joseph K. Chemplavil, M.D.

Dr. Joseph Chemplavil strongly believes in treating all of his patients with kindness and compassion.  He practices the modern “high-tech medicine” with a soft touch.  He lives and works by the philosophy of “Customized Common sense CARE™” a trademark logo that he had patented by the United States Patent and Trademark Office in 1991.

“I’m trying to work for a bigger issue in my life, a message bigger than medicine. A renowned clinician placed medicine at the intersection of philosophy and science, and I also believe the same.”

Dr. Chemplavil tailors a treatment plan to each patient’s needs – to give that patient “Customized Common sense CARE™.” He looks at age, sex, economical background, strength of family support and type of treatment plan that a patient would be able to handle with the most ease. Then he designs a “customized” and specific treatment program that is tailored to their needs, rather than going strictly by the book. He always strives to reach the “right” decision which is scientifically correct and the “good” decision that fits best with the patient’s being and circumstances.

Dr. Chemplavil wants to spread his message to other practitioners, as well as, the public. He quite often shares with his patients a prayer, taken from the words of Sir Robert Hutchinson:

“From inability to let well alone; from too much zeal for what is new and contempt for what is old; from putting knowledge before wisdom, science before art, and cleverness before common sense; from treating patients as cases; and from making the cure of the disease more grievous than its endurance, Good Lord deliver us!”
