We're a teaching program

This means your visit will include seeing a nurse, a resident, and a faculty member. A resident is a medical school graduate who is now training to determine what particular area of medicine they want to work in, such as pediatrics or family practice. Residents are doctors and provide direct care. This includes diagnosing, managing, and treating health conditions. 

Please be aware that this component of our patient care model does add some extra time to each visit.
