"Highland Urgent Care and Family Medicine is a full-service family medicine practice with an urgent care clinic and travel medicine practice. Since we became part of this community in 2004, our goal has always been to build a practice focused on providing exceptional healthcare and building relationships – with our patients and our neighbors. Over the years, we’ve grown a deep love for our people and deep roots in the community. Over these same years, the state of healthcare has evolved in a way that has distanced the relationship between doctors and patients. Insurance companies are now third-party middle men standing between us. Expenses have skyrocketed. And the whole industry has become so multi-layered and complicated, access to care is often difficult, and it’s almost impossible to predict how much medical care will (or should) cost."
