Family Medicine & Urgent Care
Family medicine, formerly family practice, is devoted to comprehensive health care for people of all ages; the specialist is named a family physician or family doctor. The name emphasizes the holistic nature of this specialty, as well as its roots in the family. It provides continuing and comprehensive health care for the individual and family across all ages, genders, and parts of the body. It is based on knowledge of the patient in the context of the family and the community. The goal of family medicine is to provide personal, comprehensive, and continuing care for the individual in the context of the family and the community.
Urgent Care is the provision of immediate medical service offering outpatient care for the treatment of acute and chronic illness and injury. It requires a broad and comprehensive fund of knowledge to provide such care. Excellence in care for patients with complex and or unusual conditions is founded on the close communication and collaboration between the urgent care medicine physician, the specialists and the primary physicians. High Mountain Health is unique in the ability to provide both Primary and Urgent Care for established patients and those new to the group.
When illness strikes outside of regular office hours, urgent care offers an alternative to waiting for hours in a hospital Emergency Room.

Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in a couple’s life.

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal
Our PicoSure laser is the most technologically advanced laser on the market today. The laser, combined with our unique pain-free removal process, ensures that your tattoo will be removed quickly, completely and virtually painless!
PicoSure’s ultra-short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, patented PressureWave, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments, less fluence and without injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated, recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.
We offer the revolutionary PicoSure FOCUS system for aesthic use.
PicoSure technology coupled with the FOCUS lens array can remove a variety of pigment abnormalities while stimulating collagen and elastin production.
