Our Mission

Personal

We are committed to personally knowing our patients, their stories, and the unique needs of them and their families.

Patient Driven

Our care respects our patients’ individual preferences, needs, and values and makes sure that patients’ values help guide clinical decisions.

Convenient + Accessible

Patients get care when and how they need it. Extended and weekend hours allow for same-day appointments and non-emergency urgent care.

Transparent

We make sure patients understand their medical treatment and what it costs in advance.

Comprehensive

We schedule longer appointments which allow medical providers and patients enough time to discuss health care needs and develop comprehensive treatment plans that suit the individual needs of each patient.

Coordinated

We manage patients’ health care services outside the clinic including referrals and treatment by specialists and other providers.

Efficient

Electronic prescriptions and medical records improve access to information and care.

Research Based

Medical staff regularly examine current best practices and research to ensure delivery of the most advanced care possible for each patient.

About Nurse Practitioners

A nurse practitioner is a registered nurse (RN) who has also completed a master’s degree in nursing science and specific training to practice medicine as an independent provider in a specialty area such as family practice, pediatrics or midwifery. In addition to educational requirements, which include continuing education, nurse practitioners are required to pass national board certification in their area of specialty. 

Licensed as both nurse practitioners and registered nurses, Family Practice nurse practitioners often provide a range of routine health care to all age groups for immediate (acute) and long-term (chronic) health needs.

Nurse Practitioners can work closely with doctors to provide individualized care for their patients. Nurse Practitioners are licensed in all 50 states, and can dispense most medications. Although doctors have additional training to help patients deal with complex medical problems, it is widely believed that Nurse Practitioners spend more time with their patients. Their training emphasizes disease prevention, reduction of health risks, thorough patient education, and comprehensive care management. Like doctors, Nurse Practitioners are involved in more than just direct patient care. Many participate in education, research, and legislative activities to improve the quality of health care in the United States.
