Dr. Timothy A. Miller and Dr. Kristin Newcome chose to become family medicine physicians because they had the desire to develop personal relationships with their patients. They are concerned that the current health care system, and the changes to come, have and will continue to become an obstacle to the care they wish to provide to their patients. Therefore, they have decided to join a rapidly growing movement to put their patients at a priority.

Priority Health Family Medicine operates on an annual membership so that you, the patient, can have unlimited access to your personal primary care physician. Membership covers the cost of office visits, eliminating the need for co-pays.
This allows patients to focus on their health needs, not worry about the cost of each visit.
By purposefully limiting the number of patients enrolled in the practice, Dr. Miller and Dr. Newcome can provide the health care you need in an unhurried atmosphere. This allows timely scheduling and 24 hour access at a reasonable cost.
