"With my decision to move my whole family to Paladina Health, that took a lot of thought because my children had our pediatrician since my oldest daughter was a little kid. So for at least 15-16 years we had the same pediatrician that I followed around town.
(SEATTLE, Wash.) - Paladina Health LLC and Brown & Haley announced Aug. 1 an alliance to offer an innovative direct primary care (DPC) option for their employees and families in Tacoma, Wash. Brown & Haley are one of three new Paladina Health clients which formerly received DPC services through Qliance, a Seattle-based provider of primary care services which recently closed its doors.
One of the most common phone calls I make to my patients is the dreaded “cholesterol results” phone call. Medicinal treatments for cholesterol have advanced greatly since I’ve been in medical school, and the guidelines have similarly changed.

The basic elements which make up a cholesterol panel include but are not limited to:
Allergies are one of those annoying things your body may have or do for no apparent reason. I took two full courses of immunology, and while these may have explained to me the “why” of them, it still doesn’t really explain…Why.

I would describe Paladina Health as a very unique approach to healthcare in the modern era. Paladina Health is really reminiscent of what old-time country doctors used to be. They knew you from birth to death. They knew your families and who you were. In the modern era we may not have that kind of relationship. This is such a refreshing approach to healthcare because it's our modernized country doctor feel, and there has been no catch.
This was the most thorough office visit I can remember receiving, and I didn’t have to come back in to review my blood work. That was really helpful with my schedule. I could just look at the results online and my doctor called me to talk about some next steps.
Even though I exercise quite a bit and my weight is okay, the results came back with some suggestions that I might be at risk for diabetes. My doctor was able to provide some quick and easy solutions to help me stay healthy instead of continuing down a path that could end poorly.
