We are here for you for the long haul. Our staff and providers are flexible in understanding what long-term support looks like for you – you tell us. If that means one-on-one appointments with your provider or Wellness Coach, Dr. Gulick’s medical group visits, Jayme Armstrong’s educational classes, or stopping by to weigh yourself, we will continue our support in the capacity that best helps you.

From our experience, coming to the clinic provides patients with accountability and support. The most important time to come in is when you don’t want to – we are here to help, without any judgment, to provide you with skills and tools to continue toward your health goals. For more information about Dr. Gulick’s medical group visits and Jayme Armstrong’s educational classes that occur on an ongoing basis, please read the descriptions below and visit the ‘Calendar’ page for a schedule.
