Becoming a New Patient

We are an independent, physician-owned group of providers, educated and experienced in the care of patients of all ages, and committed to providing high-quality, cost-effective medical care.

Fotolia_12047450_XSThe mission of Family Wellness Center is to promote healthy families by uniting time-honored medical care with today’s modern lifestyle.

We work as partners with our patients; we listen to them and encourage them to take an active role in their health and wellness. We believe educated patients are better prepared to do this, and our providers and staff are trained to educate our patients so they can make informed choices.

We take seriously our role as part of the “extended family” of greater Vancouver. We maintain staff privileges with the local hospitals, work with Clark County agencies and organizations, and support community health initiatives.

Why Should You Choose Us?

We believe that the best current medical strategies, paired with the time-honored tradition of a family doctor you know and trust, is the healthiest, most satisfying combination.

Which of your providers are accepting new patients?
Teresa Hildebrand, MD, Stephanie Bennett, FNP,  Thomas Dyehouse, MD, Karli Whittam, MD, Susan Oshiro-Zeier, FNP, and Cathleen O’Farrell, MD are currently accepting new patients. Great news — all of our providers will accept family members of current established patients.
