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. We will be moving to a monthly service fee/subscription based payment model called, Direct Primary Care.  Please see the handout below for more details. 

Please RSVP to our in person event. Dec 16th, 10:00AM at our office, 712 Macon Ave, Canon City. 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. If you have any questions please email us at:

Clinic will be closed: November 9th-13th
November 20-26th; Dec 22nd - Jan 2nd
