Our Approach to Care

The Basics

Our goals as providers are to be friendly and approachable partners in your care who are genuinely interested in you and your health. We understand the importance that communication and education play in the provider-patient relationship. We encourage you to be an active participant in your healthcare, and do our best to provide care in every sense of the word. We welcome patients ages 16 and up.


The Partnership

Your health is a partnership between you and your provider. It isn't complicated or difficult, it begins with a good patient - provider dialogue. You are an active participant in your health. If something is bothering you, let us know, if you have questions ask us, and when you need help, we'll be here for you. Prevention is the key to good health, so take the initiative and be aware of what you can do to live a healthy life.


Balance

We believe that good health is not dependent on one thing or idea. It is achieved with a combination of expert medical care and your own healthy lifestyle choices including diet, exercise, and avoidance of harmful substances. We will work together with you to develop and carry out a plan for your overall physical and emotional health.


Accessibility

While scheduled appointments help us respect your time and reduce waiting, we do our best to accommodate walk-ins when necessary. We strive to provide appropriately detailed and attentive care to each patient, and emergencies do arise, so please understand that occasional wait time is sometimes unavoidable.
