VISION

To be an organization that facilitates healing and value restoration to all we interact with.

MISSION

Since Inception, Ally Integrated Healthcare has operated on the premise that CARE and HEALING are bi-directional. Quality patient care and employee wellness are inextricably connected. As a healthcare team we are committed to providing optimal clinical care (evidence based and in a timely manner), in a patient focused environment. Conversely, we also believe that providing apsychologically safe work environment for the those who facilitate the operations and existence of the organization(our employees), leads to the best desired outcomes for ALL.

ALLY INTEGRATED HEALTHCARE

Our Practice

Ally clinicians work with the patient and, where appropriate, their support system. This might mean collaborating with your primary care doctor, or working with the family of an adolescent. Or it may be best to work with the patient alone. Our approach includes communication about your needs, education about your diagnosis and taking the time to find the treatment that works best for you. At Ally Integrated Healthcare, we strive to provide high quality care to help you arrive at YOUR optimal health. Treatment is individualized and tailored to your subjective and assessed needs. This care is carried out in a caring and respectful manner, while also maintaining our commitment to protecting your privacy. We are here to listen and guide you on this journey to greater mental health. We provide office, and/ or telemedicine visits for medication management and more.
