As specialists in primary care, we can serve the majority of your families health needs including everything from immunizations and physical exams to management of chronic diseases such as asthma, diabetes and hypertension. We also perform minor office surgery and structural treatment for back pain and headaches.
We enjoy the variety and challenge of dealing with patients of all ages-newborns, children, men, women, and seniors - Dr. Rife has a special interest in adolescent medicine and women's health issues. Among the services we provide for women are Pap smears, breast exams, and counseling on stress management, contraception and hormonal changes. Dr. McKeigue's interests include sports medicine and osteopathic manipulation.
Our philosophy is to make healthcare interactive between the physician and patient. We treat the whole person by integration of physical symptoms with environmental and emotional influences. Having families of our own, we can relate to the everyday problems and stressors which may affect your health and recovery.
We believe education is the key to developing a lifelong health plan. We also teach future healthcare providers. We will listen to your concerns, educate you in disease prevention, and keep you informed and involved in making decisions regarding your family's health. We look forward to being your personal and family physicians.
