Hearthside Medicine Family Care
Our Vision & Purpose
Our vision is to reduce barriers to care and increase access to bilingual primary care, including immunizations, for the young and the old regardless of financial status, documentation status, or ability to be seen in a traditional clinic setting due to mental health, physical health, or transportation.
Hearthside Medicine Family Care offers integrative and conventional primary care, and can serve as "PCP" for the purpose of insurance and general family care.
Conventional medicine includes diagnosis, prescriptions, referrals, and small office procedures such as skin biopsy, suturing, splinting fractures, toe nail removal, acute and chronic health management, immunizations.
“Integrative medicine” is a specialty field of medical care and a newer term that emphasizes the integration of complementary therapies and conventional treatments. Integrative medicine combines the best of both worlds, with an emphasis on safety and evidence. For example, if our patients request a less conventional treatment or prescription, we can often recommend evidenced-based herbal options or non-conventional options that may be more "naturally-minded."
Our nurse practitioner is trained in conventional family medicine, but through continuing medical education and self-learning, she enjoys providing patients the option of integrative medicine.
