About Primary Care

Our primary care team of medical doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants work with patients to provide a full range of health care services.

Our goal is to empower our patients in meeting their health goals. Our top priority is to make sure that your care is provided in the right place, at the right time, and in the manner that best suits your needs.

Because we believe that optimum well-being includes a healthy mind, body, and soul, we offer team-based treatment services for emotional and behavioral health concerns, in addition to addressing your physical and oral health needs.

Come see us at our main clinic in Frisco, at our new office in Leadville, at our seven School Based Health Centers, or through Telehealth.
