It's time to focus on both physical and emotional care for a happier, healthier you it's good to know that this service is available to all of our patients with no extra fee.

New Project (3)


At Reliance we noticed a trend where many patients were on 10+ daily medications from various providers and specialists. With so many different prescriptions to manage, patients do not always understand potential side-effects and interactions with other meds or dangers of prolonged use so we saw the importance of creating a department that is dedicated exclusively to addressing prescriptions and medications since it is such a critical part of a health and wellness plan.


Vaccines save lives and/or minimize the effects of potentially dangerous ailments. Please call Reliance at  888-414-1413  or visit  to schedule your flu, shingles or Covid vaccine.

Let’s stay healthy… together.
