What We Do

Our core services

Supervising medications is a task for professionals. Many people take 10 or more medications daily. Some are on a regular schedule, some are taken as needed, some are at different times and even in different doses. Our goal is to be sure all are taken safely and to stay on top of any side effects and interactions. But medication management is just one service we provide. We also…

What physicians say about our services

The most important role of Nurse Care Managers is to act as a liaison between the primary care provider and the patient. They sit in on medical visits, and are a second pair of eyes and ears.

I think the best thing about a Nurse Care Manager is having a point person for the patient and the family so now all parties have a face, a name, someone to call with questions or problems.
