  • Appointments are required for all non-urgent medical conditions.

  • For severe or potentially life-threatening symptoms, go to a local hospital emergency room or call 911.

Our healthcare providers are board-certified family practice physicians, internal medicine physicians, physician assistants, certified nurse practitioners and behavioral health consultants who are supported by a staff of nurses, medical technologists, radiological and ultrasound technologists, a dietitian and health promotion professionals.

Meet one of our Staff

Dr. Tai is board certified in Internal Medicine, which means he cares for a diverse patient population with all kinds of problems ranging from minor illnesses and injuries to potentially serious problems and chronic conditions like asthma and diabetes. Here, Dr. Tai discusses why he chose medicine and what he likes about his vocation:

dr tai

"I chose medicine because I felt it was a field that offered many options. General internal medicine combines my interests in science, the arts, and individuals and allows me to work in a variety of areas. Every day is a little different. Some cases need straightforward evidence-based decision making while others require less well-defined verbal and nonverbal practices. Working in a university environment involves constant change and is an ongoing learning experience. If you are thinking about a career in healthcare, I suggest exploring not only medical school but also nursing fields, advanced practice nursing programs, physician assistant programs, and pharmacy programs as they all play integral roles in healthcare now."
