We build close personal relationships with patients and get to know them as a whole person. We can then effectively treat and manage conditions before they become serious problems. The ‘medical home’ framework provides continuous overall care that integrates prevention, wellness, and arranges care with qualified specialists when needed. We encourage patients to participate in their healthcare decisions and treatments plans and provide support from in-house health specialists and personalized education to help patients make healthy lifestyle changes. We think this is a more efficient way to provide comprehensive care for a lifetime.
As your medical home we focus on a Care Team approach. Primary care physicians, specialists and the patient all communicate and work toward the same health care goal, through patient counseling, discussion of lifestyle changes, and the management of chronic conditions.
The Patient-Centered Medical Home program reflects the input of the American College of Physicians (ACP), American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and others to identify and recognize practices that function as a patient-centered medical home.
