Patient Centered Medical Home

is not a Building...

StaffHorz_1738webIt is a home base for your healthcare needs and is a partnership between you, Dr. Benson, and other office health care team members. The care you receive here is centered on you. Together we will work towards making you as healthy as possible.

We will provide you with the information needed to help maintain or improve your health. However, you must be willing to apply these tools to your lifestyle.  Your visit with us is always kept private. Therefore, the more honest you are in answering the questions asked, the better we can diagnose and treat you.

Read the letter below, called a patient-provider agreement form from our office, which explains this team approach and the mutual goals.
