Patient-centered healthcare: Toddlers through Older Adults

Inclusive design for healthcare: no "defaults." All patients are offered a "menu" of flexible options to co-create your own healthcare experience. Medical care according to your preferences, values, and the ways you think, learn, communicate, and process. Sensory, communication, and executive functioning support. Streamlined coordination of care with community resources. Different kinds of visits available: Indoor, outdoor, and telehealth. Melissa Houser, M.D. Dr. Houser is a Board Certified Family Physician who cares for babies, children and adults of all ages. She holds a Doctorate of Medicine from the University of Vermont College of Medicine, and completed her residency training in Family Medicine at Middlesex Hospital in Connecticut, where she served as Chief Resident. She also completed a Fellowship in Medical Student Education from the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine, as well as several hundreds of hours of additional training in child development and neurodevelopmental differences including autism, ADHD, dyspraxia, and learning differences. She is also a Certified Lactation Specialist.

Connection is the path to health.

Our model for healthcare is based on community connection. Our patients come here to join an interactive community. This is very different from traditional healthcare. We invite you to learn more to decide whether this model is a good fit for you.

The best I can offer for someone who has been hurt and gaslit…. is (to) be brave once more… because you will be believed at All Brains Belong.
