Our Providers

Our goal is to provide compassionate and individualized care to each of our patients. To achieve this goal, we use a Primary Care Provider (PCP) model. As a patient at Farmington Family Practice you are able to choose your personal physician (your PCP). We understand how important this relationship is and make every attempt to schedule all of your appointments with your PCP. Several of our physicians also collaborate with a mid-level provider (a physician assistant or a nurse practitioner) to improve your access to office visits. Our physician asssitants and nurse practioner work closely with your PCP to provide consistent care. This PCP model allows us to provide personalized quality care in a timely manner.
