General Health Education

Within the DWHC clinic, our medical staff collaborates and shares training, experience and knowledge of medical advances to provide the highest quality of primary care services including a range of current evidence-based best practices in medicine.

We embrace the opportunity to educate our patients.  We believe that educated patients are empowered to make better decisions on their health journey.

Our on-site conveniences include:

  • Senior Care: Internal Medicine consultations and follow-up care
  • Family Health & Wellness Consultations
  • Family Planning: IUD removal and birth control consultations
  • Pediatric Care
  • Adult and Childhood vaccinations
  • Weight Management
  • Minor Office Procedures

Good health comes from a plan of caring for yourself. Your body needs exercise, appropriate types and amounts of food, relief from tension and stress, appropriate amounts of sleep and exposure to new experiences. We encourage you to plan a lifestyle that encompasses the principles of physical and emotional well-being.
