A multidisciplinary team approach is useful in many ways. Possibly the biggest benefit is that it broadens the scope and quality of health care available to each patient. Each of our team members has specialized health care expertise that they are able to provide to further support the care provided by physicians at the clinic. Below is a list of the individual team members and examples of the services they contribute.
