The staff of board-certified family nurse practitioners at NPA Family HealthCare values respect for its patient's choice, privacy, and dignity—just one of the six values on which the staff bases its healthcare services. When treating patients, staff members take a patient-center approach that includes a holistic assessment of a person's mind, body, and spiritual wellness. Their family-oriented services range from primary care and urgent care to weight-loss management and smoking cessation, all with the goal of helping patients live a healthy life. They also offer services specific to men's and women's health and can perform minor procedures onsite.
