Our Mission

Why We Do It

Our mission is to deliver the highest quality clinical care and to sustain the health and well-being of every patient in the comfort of their own home. We strive to successfully treat and diagnose all patients, regardless of age or resources. We are able to do this on location (in-home, senior living communities, etc.) to help our patients be as independent, active, and healthy as possible - for as long as possible. We work to provide the best care to every patient through integrated clinical practice, education, and continuous research. Our goal is to maximize physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing of each of our patients.

What Patients Say About Us

  • Dr. Sarafa, we had a good meeting and I thank you. I'm glad my son Steve was able to attend and participate in Mary's care plan. You did a nice job addressing our concerns. We both felt good about the meeting. Thanks again for spending so much time with us.
