Egle Klugiene, M.D., is a family medicine physician seeing patients of all ages in the Campus Ridge Building.
Philosophy of Care
“Family Medicine gives me an opportunity to become an important part of my patients’ lives and develop authentic and very close relationships with them,” said Dr. Klugiene. “I treat every patient like I would treat my own family. The greatest reward is when people tell me they like me because I care and listen.”
“As a family physician, I am comfortable addressing the needs of the whole person for patients of all ages. Building long term relationships enhances my ability to diagnose, treat and follow them as they progress through life.”
Family medicine is a very broad field in which it is essential to have a wide range of clinical knowledge. Serving as a faculty member in the Family Medicine Residency program at MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland has helped Dr. Klugiene to keep her knowledge up to date.
“I have a unique opportunity to work with the residents, sharing with them my knowledge and experience while watching them develop into thoughtful physicians. Some of them are now successful physicians within MidMichigan Health. It’s satisfying when a few years after graduation they tell me, ‘Thank you for teaching me… I have learned a lot from you.’”
Dr. Klugiene maintains work/life balance by spending time with her husband, Arturas Klugas, M.D., who is the Program Director for the Family Medicine Residency Program at MidMichigan Medical Center - Gratiot, and her two sons, who are the center of her life. In addition to English, she speaks Lithuanian and Russian.
