NCQA Certified Level 3 Medical Home

Why is it important that we are Level 3 certified?  Because that means we put the patient first in order to help them achieve their health goals.  You receive coordinated, compassionate, evidence based care in a team setting.  You are at the center of your medical care.


Research shows NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition improves patient care and reduces costs. In addition, the PCMH model is associated with happier staff and happier patients.

What is D.O.?

Osteopathic Physicians (DO) are fully qualified physicians licensed to prescribe medication and perform surgery.  Like MDs, DOs complete an undergraduate degree before completing a four year medical degree.  DOs receive additional training during medical school in the principles and practice of OMT.  This training is designed to provide a better understanding of the ways that an illness or injury in one part of the body can potentially affect the rest of the system.  OMT further enables DOs to use their hands in making diagnoses and in encouraging the body's natural tendency toward health and healing.  Osteopathic principles lead many physicians toward careers in primary care.  DOs must pass the same examination as an MD to obtain board certification.

What is an N.P.?

Nurse Practitioners (NPs) are registered professional nurses who are prepared, through advanced graduate education and clinical training, to provide a wide range of health care services, including the diagnosis and management of common, as well as complex, medical conditions to individuals of all ages.

A Nurse Practitioner can serve as a patient's primary health care provider and is able to provide the coordination and management of care required in various health care delivery models, such as a medical home.
