4 The Health Of It is not your traditonal Family Practice Clinic. We have a completely different approach to providing you Healthcare not just sick care.
4 The Health Of It
4 The Health Of It was founded to bring a proactive approach back to Family Medicine. Traditional Family Practice is forced to treat patients like an assembly line. To even keep the lights on they need to see 20 to 25 patients per day per provider. To give the base level of care
they are in a constant battle with insurance companies for what services are covered. At 4 The Health Of It we wanted to circumvent the bureaucracy and focus just on what YOU want and need; to help you be as healthy and happy as possible.
