Care Teams

At Mill City Medical, we believe in a Care Team model that consists of a physician, advanced care practitioners (Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants) as well as medical assistants who manage and care for a specific group of patients.  This approach is based on the belief that the Patient-Care Team relationship and continuity of the provided care is at the core of our practice. 


The Care Teams work as a unit to manage your care collectively.  Each Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant are trained by their lead physician to deliver seamless care.  When you see an advanced practitioner (a Care Team member rather than the doctor within your Care Team), you are in essence, seeing the physician.  All cases are discussed, reviewed and collaborated on as treatment plans are set in place.  Unless specifically requested, for healthy patients coming in for physicals, we will alternate annual visits with the doctor and an advanced care practitioner.  


Here at Mill City Medical, we are extremely proud of the quality of our advanced care practitioners.  We take great pride in our practice and feel fortunate to work with top quality professionals to help us manage and care for all of your needs.
