Welcome To Stages of Life
Founded by David S. Klein, MD, Stages of Life Medical Institute focuses on diagnosis first and foremost. Without an accurate diagnosis, therapeutic intervention is destined to be inadequate.
Our purpose and mission is to deliver quality office-based medical services in an unthreatening, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We focus our attention on the diagnosis and treatment of pain, pain-related problems, hormonal dysfunction, and provide other diagnostic services.
Employing a comprehensive or holistic approach, we treat a variety of pain problems, from headache to foot pain, neuritis to colitis, the approach to medical treatment uses a variety of techniques that cross many sub-specialties of medicine.
We draw patients from all over the United States, and we frequently receive patients from overseas.
We currently provide comprehensive medical care in the office setting. As an important part of our practice, we perform related diagnostic and therapeutic services. In addition to treating headaches, facial pain, abdominal and back pain; pain due to cancer, degenerative diseases and trauma, we perform many of our own diagnostic modalities. This expedites treatment, and the result is a much higher quality of care than might otherwise be obtained.
Our Ancillary Diagnostic Modalities
PFT (pulmonary function testing)
ICG (impedance cardiogram)
NCV (nerve conduction velocity testing)
Bioelectrical Impedance Plesmythmography
Ethical prescription fulfillment.
We are proud to provide this wide spectrum of services to our patients, and we plan to expand our line of services in future years. We aim to provide quality medical services to patients suffering from pain as well as to patients suffering from the sequelae of degenerative processes and those disorders that result from life.
We are here to provide service to the patient. We are here for them; they are not here to serve us.
Patient satisfaction is the ultimate measure of our successes and failures.
Frequently asked questions
Where should I park? How do I get in the building?
What do I do with my kids?
What are the worship services like?
Is Augusta Heights one of those contemporary warehouse churches?
Not so much. If you grew up Baptist, AHBC will feel pretty normal to you — except for the non-judgmental acceptance of just about everyone.
What’s the dress code?
What dress code? Be yourself. Wear what makes you feel good. Just so you know, neckties and high heels are more the exception than the rule — and are rarely worn together!
Do you make visitors stand up?
Nope. You don’t have to sing either, unless the Spirit moves you. But don’t be surprised if people smile at you or try to chat you up. We can’t help ourselves.
How does Augusta Heights observe the Lord’s Supper?
We practice open table Communion, which simply means that all are welcome to partake. The way we see it, it’s Christ’s table, not ours. Who are we to withhold the Bread of Life?
What's the deal with baptism?
At Augusta Heights, we happily dunk new members who make a profession of faith. (You’ll see the baptistry behind the choir loft.) But we also recognize the baptisms of other traditions. So if you’ve been sprinkled, poured, dunked, or otherwise baptized, you’re welcome to join AHBC – and you don't have to be baptized "our way.” How wet you get is entirely up to you.
Who’s in charge?
Good question. Like all Baptist churches, Augusta Heights is independent, self-supporting, and governed by its own members, who vote on all important decisions. (Like who will serve as deacons, for instance.) Our nine-member board of deacons oversees staff, finances, and other church matters.
