Welcome to the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) initiative, a new way of managing your health care! PCMH is not a building, a house, or a hospital. It is a model of care designed to improve the coordination of your health care with an emphasis on your all-around well-being. I invite you to continue working with me in this new model of care. I will work with other health care providers to take care of you. As your care team, we will involve you in decisions about your health and health care, and thus be able to develop a stronger relationship with you. These are all elements in my PCMH approach to your care. If you are over 40 years of age or have a chronic condition for which you are being treated and have not seen me within the last year, please contact my office and schedule an appointment so we may reconnect. Attached is a list of our roles in working together to keep you healthy. If you have any questions, please call my office at (919) 851-3934. I look forward to walking with you on the path to a healthier you!
