Hi, and welcome to our website. We hope you find the information you are seeking.
We have been providing integrated family health care to residents of the Atlantic Seaboard (and beyond) for over 13 years. We pride ourselves on the excellent care we offer within a professional and warm environment. We do our utmost to cultivate what we feel is most central to healing – our relationship with patients.
In an ever increasingly complex world there is a constant struggle with information overload as we are bombarded with advice and rampant health warnings. We hope to simplify the contemporary health environment for you. To this end, we endeavor to integrate up-to-date knowledge of prevention, diagnosis and treatment with the complexities of you and your families’ everyday lives.
After all, our health is influenced and touches all parts of the worlds in which we live, from our mundane daily activities to our most intimate relationships.
We value the opportunity to help you on your path to better health.

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we bid farewell to Hester, our dear Office Manager and bookkeeper who tragically passed away this year after a long battle with cancer. She bore her burden bravely and with great dignity. She was our friend and colleague for 13 years, and will be sorely missed.
Linda is invaluable to us as she discretely keeps the office clean, checks our inventory and helps organize the filing. Her dedicated work provides us with the spotless environment within which we can comfortably provide the care you need.
Our stalwart part time secretary whose warmth and helpfulness has endeared her to all, and is the voice you will hear when Nikki
is not working.
