The Status Quo Isn’t working for
Most Patients – We’re Different
We believe that health care can be done differently. We are an integrative primary care practice that emphasizes the relationship between doctor and patient and takes into account the whole person.
Our goal is to partner with each patient to help them live their best lives and to take charge of their health. We practice evidence-based western medicine with a goal of prioritizing interventions that are prevention-focused.
Our direct-payment model (also known as Direct Primary Care) works to restore the personal relationship with your physician and removes the insurance obstacles that could prevent us from focusing on our patient’s overall health.

As always, Dr. Krisel is an excellent listener, explains conditions in a clear and understandable manner, and provides solutions adapted to each patient.
Elizabeth provides the best medical care I’ve ever received. Moreover, she’s a joy to meet with. We actually look forward to our appointments.
LOVE this group .. everyone is so friendly and concerned and organized. Dr. Brian positively exudes care and concern and an optimistic holistic approach. I believe this may be exactly what I have been looking for in health care.
Heidi was amazing. She zeroed in on the problem immediately. I would love to talk nutrition with her for hours.
The whole team sat in and what a team it was. I felt right at home and even shared some laughs during what should have been a stressful procedure. Couldn’t have asked for a better visit!
