Alaska Family Practice and Primary Care

We are a large group of highly experienced Family Practice providers, including those who have been chosen in statewide surveys as "Top Family Physicians" multiple times. Our rigorous, board-certified training, our continued education through re-certification, and our extensive experience provides the best foundation for your medical needs.

Our practitioners have received over 30 awards for excellence in care and community service. We are committed to communicating clearly with you. We serve as your "field generals", providing recommendations for your preventive, diagnostic, and treatment needs. Because we have been serving this community for over 2 decades, we know the best consultants and specialists and can connect you with them when needed.

All our medical providers stay current on certification requirements in their areas of specialty through continuing medical education, association meetings, and industry seminars. In addition, they are involved in the legislative, commissions, ad hoc committees, school groups, community sports teams, coaching, speaking engagements, radio programs, social support, education of Medical Assistants and Physician Assistants, and are a resource to the medical field in the community.

One of the most important relationships you will ever develop will be with a primary care physician you trust. Visit our dedicated Alaska PCA site to learn more about our expertise and services.

Most private insurances accepted and treat self-pay patients as well.
