Our Vision of Health and Wellness

Our vision of healthcare is a partnership between you and your physician to promote one’s unique health and wellness. We know that there is no one “prescription” for any given problem. We are interested in exploring how each individual can apply what we have learned over centuries of human experience to their specific situations to achieve optimal health. While we take being excellent at our work here very seriously, we also believe in having fun and laughing. We hope that you will join us in making the doctor's office a special place again. In order to do this to the fullest potential - we have left insurance based - fee for service type care. We provide a wide array of services for a monthly service fee/subscription based payment model called, Direct Primary Care.  Please see the handout below for more details. 

We are currently implementing a new electronic health system that also allows us to call, text, email and conduct video visits all in one place. We appreciate your patience during this periods as we all adjust to the new system!

Office will be closed:  Feb 19th, March 4th, 11th - 17th
