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 cannot maintain insurance based - fee for service type care. Please see the handout below. 

We will be announcing further dates for events that people can attend in person. Dr. Rahman will be discussing the transition of his practice to the Direct Primary Care model and the benefits to new and existing patients. Business owners are encouraged to attend and learn how they can provide affordable primary care insurance for their employees. We are excited to announce the addition to our practice January 2024, Shelby Duffey, NP will be transitioning care to our insured patients that do not wish to participate in the DPC program. If you have any questions please email us at
