Our Philosophy
The body, once it is restored to full function, can perform miracles. The multi-care center is dedicated to the combined medical and natural holistic approach, and will provide you with the best care available. This healthcare requires an interdisciplinary approach of experts only found in a diversified multi-care health center. The dedicated team creates an environment and attitude of health awareness and consciousness.

Crescenta Family Medical, Inc., is this kind of multidiscipline health center. Working in a team environment, the doctors and professional staff at Crescenta Family Medical, Inc., combine the expertise of medicine with the latest alternative therapies, chiropractic, acupuncture and massage, all in one location. The unique multi-care center provides a team approach for treatment of chronic pain to ensure faster and more complete rehabilitation.

Here at Crescenta Family Medical, Inc., the traditional medical plan is complemented with the latest alternative treatment, with expertise in the functional restoration/rehabilitation of musculoskeletal trauma and disease.

Team Approach
Medical Physicians evaluate a patient depending on the severity of the condition and the overall health of the patient . They will make recommendations, order blood, urine and other diagnostic tests, and may administer and/or prescribe various medications to help restore your bodyís function and alleviate pain. Once the acute problem is addressed and your body has begun to return to normal stasis, recommendations regarding lifestyle, exercises and nutrition will be discussed to help you maintain optimal health and wellness.

To aid our doctors in providing the most complete and comprehensive medical care available, the office is equipped with a full radiological suite and our x-rays are read by Board Certified Radiologists.

The office is also complete with diagnostic equipment such as an EKG and Spirometry to help assess the function of your heart and lungs.

If deemed medically necessary, diagnostic nerve studies, along with additional advanced imaging in the form of MRI/CT/BONE/DEXA-SCAN may be prescribed to help diagnose your condition, so that a more specific and comprehensive treatment plan can be developed just for you.

Our office is also equipped with exercise and rehabilitative equipment to help strengthen your body and restore the bodyís function to your normal activities of daily living and work, in the shortest amount of time possible.
What We Can Do
The adept diversified healthcare providers in our multidiscipline center will combine knowledge and expertise to maximize all potentials. At Crescenta Family Medical we provide medical care as well as: acupuncture, massage and chiropractic treatment.

Although all patients have similarities in anatomy and physiology, no two persons are alike. Each patient has a unique health history and unique health expectations. It is indeed the reason why our team of experts, in a multi-care center, takes extra time to formulate a specific and individual treatment plan for your condition.

Generally, the treatment process will consist of three steps:

 • Intensive
 • Reconstructive/Rehabilitation
 • Active Home Care and/or Maintenance

Cost and insurance questions concern many patients. Although each prescribed course of treatment calls for different financial requirements, most insurance companies pay for these treatments. To maximize treatment results and minimize cost, patient compliance, as well as general contractual agreements and protocols must be met. Our office staff is knowledgeable in dealing with insurance questions and is always available to assist you. We will do our best to provide your insurance company with the required information based upon your specific insurance plan and condition.

For patients without insurance or patients with deductibles, non-covered services, co-insurance payments and/or co-payments, financial arrangements can be discussed with our financial administrator to help establish an easy payment plan. We accept Visa and Mastercard for your convenience.

By taking a team approach to your healthcare needs and providing a multidiscipline approach in one convenient location, you receive the best, most comprehensive care possible, saving you time and money.
