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.
