Compassion: The fundamental requirement for any healthcare practice is compassion. Without it, our patients are simply data in a system. With it, we can truly listen to our people’s needs and provide them with the support and services necessary for better health.
Knowledge: Our practice values continuing education and encourages our practitioners to pursue it (beyond re-certifications). We utilize the most innovative practices and approaches that keep your well-being top of mind. Equally important, we believe in educating our patients so they are empowered about their health needs.
Integrity: Health is highly personal. We keep our patients’ confidence, are straightforward and honest, and build trust from the first intake form to the end of every visit. Our practice likewise keeps integrity by cultivating a cohesive team of like-minded individuals.
Respect: Respect comes from within at Caldera Family Medicine.

What should I expect at my new patient visit?
Your visit starts with filling out intake paperwork, so we can get to know you better. Your healthcare provider will spend time with you reviewing your medical history, including past illnesses, surgeries, medications, allergies, and any current symptoms or concerns. If indicated, it may include a physical exam, blood work, or other testing. Your new patient visit is a routine, non-preventive visit. Most people are due for their annual exam, which requires a follow-up appointment. However, children’s well-child checks or sports physicals can typically be done at the same time as their new patient visit.
What should I expect at a physical or a well-woman/man exam?
During this visit, we do a thorough physical exam and review preventive health screening specific to you, your age, and your risk factors. This is when we discuss mammograms, cervical cancer screenings, colon cancer screenings, and much more. We may order various lab tests depending on you, your history, and specific concerns. Please don’t hesitate to communicate openly with your healthcare provider about any concerns or questions you may have before and during the visit.
Do you offer telemedicine appointments?
Yes, we’re proud to offer telemedicine appointments to patients who request them. Please visit our Patient Resources page for more information.
Do you take insurance?
