Who Are We? //

     We are a team of four physicians and three medical office assistants who are looking to create a medical home for our patients in the valley. We want you to feel comfortable coming to see your doctor and are working towards this every day. While each patient has a designated physician, we also cover each other regularly. In this way you will be seeing a physician you are comfortable with, and who has access to all your notes and records.

     We are also a teaching clinic and you will sometimes be seen by a resident or medical student during your visit. This is very important for their education and ours as students always bring in new information. If you are uncomfortable with this please let us know in advance when booking your appointment.

Are Masks Mandatory in our clinic (2024)

Masks are NOT  mandatory in our clinic at this time, we do require you to put on a mask please if you have any, or have had any recent symptoms of a cough, cold, fever, sore throat, etc. 

We appreciate your understanding.
