Our group allows you choose a Primary Care Physician to manage your health care needs.

Should you require a specialist, ask one of our representatives for a list of our 80+ specialty physicians in the Encompass Network.

Family physicians are a recognized medical specialty requiring years of additional post graduate training. Our Family Physicians are trained in all major medical areas. They diagnose and treat the full range of problems. They know when to treat you, and when to bring in another specialist you can trust. Our family physicians know that you're not just a collection of parts, symptoms or conditions. You're a whole person and they treat you like one. Family physicians practice today's medicine with knowledge of the most up-to-date treatments and technologies with Continuing Medical Education that means our family physicians are experts at applying the latest medical breakthroughs to the everyday care of their patients.

Our focus is preventive medicine. We believe that preventing a health problem is better than having to overcome one. We seek to help you make the right health choices...to keep you and your family healthy.
