All Providers

A gifted team of dedicated professionals who care about each patient and have a passion for their wellness.

All healthcare providers at Crusader are American trained and board certified, which means they have passed very difficult national tests. No volunteers are used here. Our staff includes physicians, dentists, Certified Physician Assistants, Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioners, Certified Nurse Midwives and Doctors of Pharmacology. Most work full time only at Crusader Community Health.

During your health care visit, you will be asked to choose a Primary Care Provider (PCP) for your medical and dental needs. You will not rotate sites or providers, unless your personal provider is not available.

Our focus is out-patient (out of hospital) ‘primary care’ that involves adult internal medicine, family practice, pediatrics and women’s health. Some specialty services are on-site; however most specialty care is handled by a referral outside our system. We also focus on care to prevent illnesses, care to find problems early (such as cancer) and care to prevent complications from diseases.

Crusader providers will utilize “Best Practice” modern standards of care at all times to manage and improve your health care.
