Come and join our medical home and be a part of our family 

Dear Patient:

Welcome to my practice. Being a physician is a privilege and an honor, and I’m committed to providing you with the best care I can.

I started this practice in 2005 to offer patients an alternative to the typical assembly line medicine I was seeing in other practices.  We feature same day appointments, 24/7 access to our doctors, extended visit time and strive not to leave you sitting in the waiting room.  We want to get to know you and tailor your health care to you personally.  From the front desk to the back office we truly CARE about you and your health.

I look forward to working with you as your family doctor and together help you achieve the healthful life that you deserve.

Sincerely,

Your Physician at HealthCare for Life

Why Wellness Exams are Vital

CEO


An annual wellness exam is a comprehensive preventative exam with your primary care provider for the sole purpose of preventative care. An annual exam does not include discussion of new problems or detailed review of chronic conditions. Annual exams may also be called routine check-ups, yearly exams, an annual physical or preventive visit.

This visit discusses your health maintenance, such as screening tests for cancer, depression, risk of falling  and immunizations for disease control.

It includes a medication reconciliation, making sure you are on the appropriate medications with minimal side effects and no interactions. 

Questions from your physician may trigger testing that uncovers illness early in the process.

Obesity Linked to at Least 13 Cancers

Senior Architect


Family physicians should counsel all patients on nutrition, physical activity, and behavioral strategies to prevent inappropriate weight gain and obesity. Family physicians should screen all adult patients for obesity and offer intensive counseling and behavioral interventions to promote sustained weight loss for obese adults, including nutrition education and healthy diet planning.

Your treatment plan may include developing an exercise  routine that fits your lifestyle and incorporates activity which addresses aerobics, muscle tone, stretching, and balance.

What our patients are saying

I love Dr. Frantz. She is the smartest, most caring Doctor that I have ever been to. She actually saved my husbands life. He had a high potassium level after a routine blood test and slight shortness of breath.  Dr. Frantz recommended a stress test. The cardiologist said he had one a year ago. Dr. Frantz insisted on another test. That test revealed 3 clogged arteries and he had to have open heart surgery. He is alive today because of her. She is the best !!!
