Who Are We? //

We are working together to keep our staff and our patients safe with moving to a mostly virtual based clinic for the time being. All appointments are initially phone calls with your doctor, if after your Doctor decides you need to be seen in person that will be arranged accordingly. All prescription refills must have a virtual appointment to be refilled. MOA's cannot give you your results over the phone without first discussing with your Doctor. 

We appreciate all the patience with our staff and community as we are continually changing with our times in this 'New Normal".

     We are a team of three 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.
