In order to help our patients achieve their best health and well-being, our current model of care, otherwise known as “care teams”, have been put into place to enhance the care patients already receive. These care teams consist of physicians, physician assistants/nurse practitioners, nursing and clinical support staff and navigators/case managers. These care teams are broken down based on the clinics in which the providers practice.
