We have dedicated our practice to providing preventative healthcare as well as treatment of sick and injured patients. Please note that while we make every effort to see patients in order of arrival, the most critical and life threatening cases are treated and stabilized first. We will never compromise the care of any patient simply to see patients on time or in order of arrival. While this may result in an occasional need to wait, we take the time required to provide personalized quality care to each patient.
