JUDITH BORNSTEIN-CHAU, M.D.

Dr. Bornstein-Chau specializes in hospital medicine. Trained in Internal Medicine at Temple University Hospital and Board Certified in Internal Medicine since 2009, and has practiced since that time at several hospitals in the Philadelphia area.
Dr. Bornstein-Chau focuses on the care of hosptialized patients. She recognizes that being hospitalized can be unsettling both for patients and families. But she views these potentially difficult experiences as opportunities for opening dialogue about making choices that can decrease the likelihood of hospitalization in the future. Her specific areas of physiologic interest are in interactions of diseases of the lungs and heart, and heart failure in particular. But her real passion is for the art of medicine, for the place where the science and the humanism overlap. Dr. Bornstein-Chau knows that clear communication with patients, their families, and their primary care physicians is of the utmost importance in helping people reach their goals of better health. She feels that the education piece is one of her most important contributions she can make to a patient's return to health. She loves to help patients and their families understand the reasons why they may not feel as good as they used to, and to help them discover ways to make incremental changes in their lives to help them reach their goal of feeling better, and actually being healthier. "In our world where everything moves so quickly and "answers" seem to be at your fingertips, I think many people feel like they should be able to make overnight changes in their health and that if they don't, they are failures. I think it's incredibly important to remove this expectation, and to help people understand that slower changes are not only easier, they are usually better for you and more sustainable.
