Patient Centered Medical Home


The American Academy of Pediatrics promotes access to quality Medical Homes for all children and youth.

What Is a Family-Centered Medical Home

The Medical Home… is accessible, continuous, comprehensive, family-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective care (AAP policy statement, 2002, reaffirmed 2008).

This means our practice, as your Medical Home, is a central resource for all of your child’s care needs. In a Medical Home, your doctor, nurse of physician’s assistant and their staff who see your child for routine check-ups – makes you fell like you are the most important part of the health care team. You are welcome and invited to participate in all aspects of your child’s care.

As your Medical Home we will also help you find needed information and resources, such as information about:

  • Pediatric specialists
  • Health conditions/latest treatments
  • Home care, equipment, and vendors
  • Supports and respite services for your family
  • Other key local services

We have “policies” with your needs in mind…for example

  • When you call for an appointment you will be seen on the same day as needed
  • When your child has tests or procedures done you will get the results by the next 1-2 days on patient portal
