Practice Information
The Portrait Health Way - Our Philosophy
Portrait Health Centers are multi-specialty clinics that employ the most cutting-edge and proven assessment protocols and treatment options available, believing that an Effective Treatment Depends On An Accurate Diagnosis. Individuals should not have to “play doctor” by researching available treatments and then self-selecting which of these treatments has been scientifically validated and would be most appropriate for themselves or their family. At Portrait Health Centers, we provide a comprehensive and multi-specialty assessment to determine the underlying causes of your symptoms and incorporate an appropriate treatment plan.

About the Portrait Health Centers
Portrait Health Centers
Founded on the principles of scientific research, and operated under the same model used by the Mayo Clinic, our unique model of having a multispecialty team of healthcare practitioners ensures the comprehensive and objective assessment of the patient and delivery of proven treatment protocols leading to positive patient outcomes. Merely offering hope to individuals and families is simply not adequate.

All patients at the Portrait Health Centers are assigned a Patient Coordinator trained to act as a Patient Educator and Patient Advocate not only for the benefit of the patient but for the family, as well. Each patient’s coordinator fully explains each option available to them and assists in making the right decision as to the course of treatment. Because all medical specialties are located within the Portrait Health Centers, the Patient Coordinator can help arrange an appointment with any of the departments to insure organized and predictive care.

The Portrait Health Centers provide a convenient source for all of the proven technologies and therapies for Depression, Nutritional needs, ADHD and other behavioral and learning disabilities.
