At the Family Health Center, we know health care is about more than just “doctoring.” It’s about caring.
Which is why we treat your family as more than just patients. From the moment you walk into our office, when you’ll be greeted warmly and treated with respect, you’ll realize we see you as friends, as neighbors… as family.
And that’s just the beginning. To learn more about the difference our caring approach to comprehensive family health care can make, read the words of this web page. Then, if you have any questions, give us a call. After all, you’re the only reason we’re here.

A Family Tradition of Caring
“Every time a mom brings her young son in with an ear infection, or a husband brings his wife by for a blood pressure check, I realize they’re trusting me to give someone they love the best possible care. Just like they trusted my dad when he began our practice over 30 years ago. And like my dad, I value that trust more than anything…and I’ll do whatever it takes to help it grow.”
