Wellness and Prevention

Our highest goal is to help you reach and maintain your optimal state of health, no matter where you are in life.

We offer a range of services to support families, including preventative care, routine check-ups and vaccinations.

I recently visited Carlden Health for a routine check-up and I must say, it was an exceptional experience. From the moment I walked into the office, I was greeted with warmth and professionalism from the entire staff. The doctor was incredibly knowledgeable, attentive, and caring throughout my appointment. Not only did she address my concerns, she also provided me with valuable advice and answered all of my questions with patience and expertise. I highly recommend Carlden Health to anyone in need of a skilled and compassionate doctor. Thank you for your exceptional care and service.

Dorcas (the nurse practitioner at Carlden Health Family Clinic) is excellent. She is friendly, knowledgeable, efficient, a good listener, and very caring. She is also very thorough and a good advocate for her patients. The receptionist/medical assistant is also friendly and helpful. The office is clean, beautiful, and conveniently located (with plenty of parking). For these reasons and more, I give Dorcas and Carlden Health Family Clinic my highest recommendation.

My family and I had our first visit with the doctor recently, we had a checkup, and then returned for a consultation on our test results. The doctor was very thorough in explaining all of the results, and went through all of the ways to improve our health. She also is empathetic and wants to hear everything that's going on to best assess our health. We all felt very comfortable with the doctor and well cared-for. We are just switching insurance and doctor this year so finding Carlden Health was great for us.
