Welcome to Headland Family Medicine
We are so glad that you have chosen to visit our website and doctors office and hope that you choose Headland Family Medicine as your medical home. Please take a little time to review this site to learn how our staff works to provide you with access to care when you need it.
Headland Family Medicine is a medical home offering patients a lasting relationship with a care team to coordinate your healthcare needs. The care team at Headland Family Medicine is made up of Dr. Niel Rasmussen, a board-certified Family Medicine physician; Ramona Bolin, Physician Assistant; and several nursing and clerical staff members. Headland Family Medicine has been awarded Recognition by the National Committee for Quality Assurance for the Diabetes Physician Program for over 10 years now.
Headland Family Medicine has also been awarded national Recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance for Patient Centered Medical Care for 9 years now.
These quality recognition awards reflect the importance we as a medical practice place on the patient as the center of focus of all that we do with special emphasis on the care for patients with diabetes and prediabetes.
One of the unique ways we attempt to provide patient centered care is to provide tools for lifestyle management. This is a major focus of our practice model. One of several tangible ways this is addressed at our practice is through monthly group support classes. These are provided as a free support service to our patients who are attempting to use lifestyle changes to treat and reverse their disease processes or even to prevent these so common diseases of today’s culture.
“Most recent statistics show that more than 80 percent of the chronic medical conditions we see on a daily basis in primary care medicine can be successfully treated and, in many cases, put into remission through lifestyle and behavioral modifications. This lifestyle treatment focus requires the patient to be at the center of every individualized treatment plan,” says Dr. Niel Rasmussen, regarding the philosophy and approach of being a medical home. “We are proud to once again receive the commendation of distinction from the National Committee on Quality Assurance for our Patient-Centered Coordinated Care Management Processes,” he adds.
We provide several diagnostic testing services at our facility to include EKGs, Spirometry, X-ray services and several laboratory tests. Every effort is made to perform these services during your visit to assist with providing a comprehensive evaluation during one visit.
Headland Family Medicine accepts patients five days a week, Monday- Friday 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. Your care team’s schedule is designed to have open appointments during clinic hours. Allowing you to schedule an appointment on the day you contact us. Every effort will be made to provide same day appointments with your provider, treating you with appropriate attention to your needs.
