About Minuteman Medicine
To glorify God by obeying the great and first commandment as well as the second: You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind AND you shall love your neighbor as yourselves.
Minuteman Medicine’s mission is to provide the absolute best quality medical care available in the world today and to help our patients realize their health potential and allow them to achieve their personal best.
When you are a patient of Minuteman Medicine, you are stepping out of conventional healthcare and into a model of health care from yesteryear. You will be
given comprehensive and individualized care that is evidence-based and suited to your personal needs.
Minuteman Medicine offers a full line of services including Primary Care, Lifestyle Medicine and Pulmonology. (Nephrology will be coming very soon). For those that don’t have time to come in or just want to stay home, telemedicine is an option. We also offer urgent care services for when you’re sick or injured. As always, if it’s a medical emergency such as stroke or heart attack symptoms, please go to the nearest ER.
The name “Minuteman Medicine” was chosen because I wanted a name that would describe several things. First, we wanted a name that would let people know this is a health care organization, hence the word “medicine” in our name. When people hear the word “medicine”, they typically think of the art and science of diagnosing, treating and preventing diseases. We also wanted a name that describes the timeliness of which you can expect to
be seen after making an appointment. “Minuteman” was chosen because during the Revolutionary War, the “minutemen” were a highly mobile, rapidly deployable force that were able to immediately
respond to war threats. That’s the same with us; we respond very quickly to our patient’s needs, usually within 24 hours, if not immediately.
At Minuteman Medicine, we believe God is the Creator of all things. We subscribe to the belief that Jesus is the great physician and that we are just members of His church using our talents to further His Kingdom. We know that sickness and death are
a direct result of mankind’s sin and the original fall in the garden. We also know that God gave us plants for food which can directly affect many disease processes and in some cases, cure and reverse disease. We are not perfect, as no one is. But we will do our best to provide you the health care you deserve as one of God’s highest and greatest creations.
Why does our slogan have health care as two words? Healthcare as one word describes the system of healthcare, which is unfortunately spiraling out of control in America. Minuteman Medicine was founded to be a much-needed alternative to the status-quo and offer a true HEALTH CARE approach for treating our patients.
Health Care as two words describes what
happens to a patient – the actions provided by the physician, nurse, and other medical personnel to a patient. This is hopefully an interactive event, with participation by both the provider and the patient.
Not only that, we will do our best to see you same day or at least within 24h. You will not have to wait weeks to be seen. We will take walk-ins as well. Of course, as a walk-in, our appointments take priority, but you will be seen in a timely manner.
