I’m Dr. Borchers. I work in Family Medicine, Cotton O’Neil.

Why did you choose to practice family medicine?

In medical school, I thought for the longest time that I’d do pediatrics. But after doing some adult rotations — geriatric rotations — I came to appreciate the whole age spectrum and decided I wouldn’t limit myself just to children.

Why did you choose to work at Stormont Vail Health?

I’ve been with Stormont Vail-Cotton O’Neil for over 20 years. Stormont Vail-Cotton O’Neil is a great system. They support their physicians and allow us to practice in a meaningful way. I’ve just been really happy and haven’t seen any need to try and go anywhere else.

What procedures do you specialize in? What conditions do you treat?

We do physicals, we do well-child checks. We take care of ongoing issues. Family medicine involves a lot of treatment of underlying conditions that might lead to problems down the road. So, we try to control hypertension, and cholesterol, and diabetes in order to prevent heart disease and strokes.

Why should patients trust you with their care?

I would hope a patient would trust me with their care because I try to take care of my patients the same way I would take care of my family, be it my parents, or my spouse, or my kids.
