Wellness Family Medical Micropractice Comes to Verde Valley
Wellness Family Medical is primary care at its best, dedicated to using the most advanced modern medicine in combination with mind-body techniques to help patients and their families optimize health and wellbeing.
Owner and health care provider Deb Schindele, FNP-BC, MA, PhD, says that the mission of Wellness Family Medical is "Health Care with a Heart."
In her past medical career in biotechnology, she helped develop numerous diagnostic tests and therapeutic drugs after completing a postdoctoral fellowship and Ph.D. in organic chemistry/biochemistry at the University of Washington.
She then suffered a health crisis that led to an exploration of alternative medicine and a master's degree in psychology. Her current expertise takes advantage of these past experiences and merges them with years of bedside nursing in critical care and an advanced nursing degree.
As a board certified Family Nurse Practitioner, Schindele brings a unique style to Sedona that encompasses modern and complimentary medicine with a practice leaning toward patient-centered care.
Family Nurse Practitioners like Schindele are capable of providing comprehensive and holistic medical care to patients from birth through the cycle of life. In Arizona and 20 other states, FNP-BC providers offer the same services as medical doctors, including assessment and treatment, diagnostic testing, and prescribing.
According to Schindele, Wellness Family Medical's highest intention is to facilitate optimum health and wellness, always working in partnership with patients. "We endeavor to take the time to listen to our patients and learn their issues and concerns in service to preventing and reversing health problems and creating optimum health, wellness and longevity. As such, we operate on an ideal Medical Micropractice model."
Micropractice providers see fewer patients by and large, and thus are able to focus on each patient's needs more intently, meeting the needs and designing treatment plans that suit each individual.
Located in a small, comfortable rock building in Uptown Sedona at 461 Forest Road (behind the fire station), Wellness Family Medical feels like a relaxed visit to a friend who happens to be a top-of-the-line health care expert and who wants to help you maintain and optimize your health.
Schindele lives her motto that "Prevention is the Best Medicine of All" and, having faced her own life-changing medical crisis, intends to walk compassionately beside and guide her patients to wellness. Appointments can be made online at www.wellnessfamilymedical.com.
