A Doctor's Office that Puts You First

It’s a promise that a lot of providers make, but at Reliance, we built our entire healthcare system in a way that ensures we deliver on our promise. We do this by delivering your care via our 8-Person Care Focus Team, which includes your Primary Care Physician, Personal Medical Concierge and Nurse Practitioner.

By providing you with your own team of healthcare specialists, we empower you to take control of your health. Your Primary Care Physician acts as the leader of the team, and they will provide you with the quality, friendly, patient-focused care you deserve.

Meet Your Care Focus Team

Your 8-Member Care Focus Team works together to get you healthy and keep you well. Aside from doctor visits, let us help you coordinate and navigate appointments, insurance, referrals and prescriptions.

As part of our re-imagined Primary Care, every Reliance patient member is supported and cared for by a dedicated Care Focus Team, a coordinated group of 8 medical professionals who work together to get you healthy and keep you well.

New Power of 8-01
