One Home for Your Entire Medical History
Our hope is that we form a partnership to keep you as healthy as possible. We will share our medical expertise with you, and we hope you’ll take responsibility for working toward the healthy lifestyle that is so important to your well-being. It will give us great pleasure to work with you on these goals, either through our own expertise, through other resources we know about, or by referral to other health professionals.
We want everyone to be involved. Everyone who joins our practice should start by choosing a primary care physician. Then come in for a wellness visit with this physician to establish your care. After establishing, you can expect most of your care to be provided by this primary care physician and their associated team of nurses and nurse practitioners to maintain continuity.
We want to help you stay healthy, so it’s important to come in for wellness visits when you are feeling well. Please don’t wait until you are sick to choose a doctor! To effectively serve you, we will ask for a complete medical history, family history, list of medications, vaccinations, and a list of your specialists names so that we can have a complete picture of your health and coordinate care effectively.
