About Charis Clinic

10+ Years

Healthcare on a human scale

Founded in 2009, Charis Clinic is a small family-centered practice that believes personalized care and relationship building are the basis for improving health outcomes. Patients can schedule appointments online at a time that works for them. Same or next business day appointments are available.

When you call, you reach your health care provider or her personal voicemail. In the case of an urgent concern after hours, you reach your provider by phone. When you come in, we listen. In order to keep our promise of excellent care, we limit the size of our practice.
