Mt. Airy Pediatrics, PC uses the Patient Centered Medical Home model of care. Patient Centered is a way of saying the patient is the most important person in the health care system.
A Medical Home is an approach to providing total health care. In a medical home the patient joins a team of health care professionals to help with health care. The doctors and staff here at Mt. Airy Pediatrics are all part of the medical home. We are here to help reach health care goals emphasizing improving and maintaining healthy lifestyles. We are committed to providing our patients with support to manage their treatment plans. We coordinate care with other physicians to provide evidence-based care along with self-management support.
Within a Medical Home, the patient and provider team works together. As an active member of the team, patients have a chance to explain things that are important to them. To assist us with providing the best possible care, patients need to provide a complete medical history including any care received outside of our practice.
We could not accomplish our mission and vision without our outstanding administrative, and amazing clinical support staff.
