Simply Better
Health Care.

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.

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!

The Principles of Integrative Family Medicine

 

1 The patient and our care team are partners in the healing and prevention process.

2 Our goal is to help our patients succeed in preventing, treating and reversing disease. Therefore, we partner with each patient to help them live their best lives and to take charge of their health. We recommend both evidence-based western medicine and natural options and neither reject nor accept either conclusively.

3 When prescribing care, we consider all factors that determine your overall health.

4 All of the members of our care team are committed to excellence and lifelong learning and self-development in the pursuit of the care of our patients, our community and our world.

Complete Primary Care for All Stages of Life


We provide the same quality care for all ages. Seniors over 65 don’t pay more and children under 18 are eligible for a discounted rate in addition to two full-paying family members.
