Paladina Health Shield

Blog Post

Ever wonder how an organization came up with their name or logo? We do too. So we thought we’d share the story behind Paladina Health and what our branded shield means to us.  At Paladina Health, our shield has far more meaning than just a logo. It stands for who we are. And, really what is most important, are the visionary people behind the shield. 

Champions of our noble cause: transforming healthcare

At Paladina Health, we share a common vision to be the leader in transforming how primary care is delivered for our patients, providers, and clients.


Dr. Kevin Izard describes his philosophy of care and what makes Paladina Health different and how he helps his patients save money and get better healthcare.

Whether you’re a mother, father or caregiver to a family member, it’s important to take care of your own health and well-being so you can continue to care for those you love. We applaud your commitment to caring for your family, you are our heroes; but don’t let caring for yourself drop to the bottom of the list. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), approximately one out of every two U.S. adults has at least one chronic illness, many of which are preventable. The good news is that there are a few simple steps that can easily be taken to improve your health and prevent health problems.


"Instead of getting a call from a medical assistant with numbers saying 'don’t worry about it' was 'come back in, talk to the doctor, we’ll sit down for 30 minutes and talk about some things we can do about it,' which was refreshingly different."

“My son was struggling with a skin condition for a long time and we tried many doctors, but nothing was working. Finally, we went to the Paladina Health clinic and the doctor was able to solve the issue right away. After this success, my other son went to see him as well and came home ready to change his health. My wife and I were amazed. After receiving wonderful care from her new physician, she also decided to switch completely from her old one. The doctors at Paladina Health have provided great care for my entire family and always take the time to listen to and care for us.

“When I dislocated my knee, I didn’t know what to do, who to call or what the next step was. After my trip to the ER, I was hesitant to visit the Paladina Health clinic, thinking “what is a primary care physician going to do about my dislocated knee?” I was in a pretty rough state.

My visit to the Paladina Health clinic was amazing. My doctor acknowledged my fears and promised she would help me. She found me a physical therapist that lived near my home and relieved a lot of my stress during a time when I had no idea where to start and she made it easy to move forward.


My first visit to the Paladina Health clinic was awesome. I felt unrushed and had one-on-one time with my doctor. My Paladina Health doctor’s attention to care was beyond anything I’ve received from any other doctor. It really does feel like my doctor cares about me and remembers me.

“I have a chronic heart condition, so I’ve been in and out of hospitals and doctors’ offices since I was 6 months old, in addition to having had multiple surgeries. After dislocating my ankle, I went into the Paladina Health clinic. I was so impressed at how friendly, approachable and responsive my doctor was. With previous doctors, I was used to rushing through a shortened medical history of my 10 surgeries, because they never had enough time to hear everything.


Tyler's mom, Meredith shares Tyler's Paladina Health story:

My teenage son Tyler was having ongoing stomach troubles and we had talked to his pediatrician about it many times. He was repeatedly prescribed over-the-counter medications by the pediatrician, which weren’t helping. His condition worsened and my once-active son was missing lacrosse practices—and didn’t want to go far from home. I took him to the Paladina Health clinic as a last resort. That was when everything changed.
