Anchorage Doctors Involved in The Community
All of our Anchorage doctors have lived in this city for over 20 years and are part of the community. This is their home and the citizens of Anchorage are their friends and neighbors … and their patients. This is such a wonderful group of caring individuals with years of experience available to help people in need of medical attention. They work together for the good of the patients and will see each other’s patients if necessary, so you can always be seen the same day. In addition we have on-site Lab and X-Ray so you don’t have to go to another facility to have testing done. We’re located just two blocks south of the Captain Cook Hotel in downtown Anchorage and have our own parking lot for your convenience.
