We are invested in forging a strong partnership with our patients which facilitates a mutual understanding of health and lifestyle goals and strives to achieve those goals based on a mutually developed health roadmap.
First Time Patient Visit
Your doctor or nurse practitioner will spend quality time with you to get to know you well and develop a mutual patient-doctor relationship.
Follow up Patient Visits
Your follow up visits are regular check-ins with your doctor or nurse practitioner so that your health is being regularly monitored and all your health targets are on track.
Annual Physical Exams
Annual Physical exams are extremely important annual health assessments in which a comprehensive review of all your preventative care is done.
Care Coordination Visits
Have you had a recent procedure or surgery? Have you recently seen a specialist for a specific health problem? Have you been recently hospitalized?
