Dr. Binoy Shah, MD
Hello and Welcome to Advanced Physical Medicine! I'm excited that you're making the first steps towards a healthier, more functional YOU!
I'm Dr. Binoy Shah and I lead the team here at APM. As a doubly Board-Certified physician in both Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine, I'm acutely aware of the ramifications of long-term treatment with medications, including the risks of addiction with most commonly prescribed pain medications. My primary specialty is helping patients overcome their addictions to lead more functional, fulfilling lives.
Regenerative Medicine is a natural evolution to that line of thought. We're finally finding ways to more effectively treat a variety of conditions, without medications and the risks they entail. As a physician, I clearly believe there is a place for medications in a treatment plan. However, our goal at APM is to provide improvement in your daily functioning without the need for medication and to provide lasting benefits with the fewest treatments possible!
From your initial consultation through each of your treatments, our staff at APM will work hard to ensure you have the best possible outcome. Of course, you will have to do your part too! This is a team effort and we expect that you'll work toward your own success, as well. You're here because you want something different, and we'll work together to help you reach your goals.
Suzanna Myalik Stefoglo, FNP-C
Hello, a bit about me:
My name is Suzanna Myalik Stefoglo! I received my Master’s Degree in the Family Nurse Practitioner program at the State University of New York Polytechnic Institute of Utica, NY, where I also earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Prior to that I earned my Associate Degree in Nursing (Registered Nurse, RN) from Mohawk Valley Community College of Utica, NY. I was born and raised in central New York State surrounded by a wonderful and culturally diverse population, my loving family, and endless opportunities to explore the Adirondack outdoors. From here come my hobbies of spending time outdoors in every way possible from hiking and biking to gardening. In my free time if I’m not outdoors, you can almost always find me working on one crafty endeavor or another, and it’s a guarantee you will find a started knitting project at anytime. In July of 2016 I married my husband Alex and relocated to his home city- Charlotte, NC. Together we started our family roots here in the Carolina’s and have one son.
Through my career transformations from a hospital based RN to a clinic based FNP, I have seen many patients with chronic and acute illnesses. Many patients would keep cycling through the healthcare system with the same problem repeatedly, not getting better but often getting worse. My encounters and desire to help these patients get better, led me to developing my own philosophy of nursing which rests in assisting patients and families in returning to and maintaining optimal independent functioning through a holistic care approach, and regenerative medicine helps me accomplish exactly that!
The path to independence for you begins from our very first encounter here at Advanced Physical Medicine, which will set the foundation and the course of the provider-patient relationship towards healthy independence. The foundation of our interactions consists of education, as it is paramount for you as the patient to know what is happening, what you can do to help, and what is being done to help aid in your recovery. With each step of our interactions, we will strive to make attaining healthy independent functioning a possibility for you so that you can (1.) Be as independent as possible, (2.) Function at an optimal level of health, (3.) Reduce the possibility of complications or hospitalization. My personal approach and philosophy is more than getting you well, it is about keeping you well!
My name is Johana Perez; I’m from Colombia, S.A; and have been here since I was 17 years old. I started working in the medical field at vision works as an eyewear specialist. Later I transferred to Novant Health care. Where I became certified as an Spanish translator. I love working with and helping people. After almost 3 years of working with Novant; I applied for my current position at this facility. During my interview I was amazed by how caring and kind the doctors and my fellow colleagues were. I immediately felt as if I was part of their family and feel in love with the job and the work we do; we provide many unique procedures that get our patients back healthy and staying healthy . I can proudly say I wake up every day happy and excited to go work.
Hi, my name is Christina Register; I was born and raised in Kansas, until I moved to Jacksonville Beach, FL where I spent the next 6 years of my life. I then moved to North Carolina in 2014, and have been here since. I have worked in client relations for over 13 years, which I thoroughly enjoy, as I love to help people enrich their lives and better themselves. Upon meeting the staff of Advanced Physical Medicine, I was floored by how incredibly friendly everyone was. I immediately felt like I was welcome here, and that everyone is truly concerned with your well-being. This is a place I can honestly say I absolutely love working for and I enjoy coming here daily.
I can proudly stand behind the work that is done in our office because I personally see the results by how our patients are able to move more freely, and are in better spirits after starting their therapies with us. It is such an honor to have our patients share stories with us about how they are now able to enjoy life again, engaging in activities that they previously couldn’t because of the pain that they were living with.
