Integrated Care Team

Heather Pett-Taylor, MD

“I believe knowing a patient’s story allows me to better understand each persons health needs.  By meeting our patients in their homes, we are able to enrich that story and further partner with them, their family and the health team to achieve the goals the patient chooses.” – Heather Pett-Taylor

“I have previous experience working with aging populations and I enjoy addressing their unique and challenging medical needs. Older patients bring with them wisdom that can only belong to a person who has lived many years and more often than not, my interactions with these patients have proved to be a rewarding experience, both personally and professionally. I value having the chance to provide medical evaluation and treatment to patients in their living environments which I believe will enhance my interactions with my patients, thus leading to better relationships and an exceptional level of care.” –Amegbo Toffa

Joy Adams, PA-C

“After working as a group home staff member for over five years, my perspective and values were radically altered by the residents I was able to serve. They taught me to appreciate the little things in life that truly matter, such as seizing the moments that we’re gifted with and discovering opportunities for laughter. I am genuinely humbled to once again come alongside this community so that I can attend to them with honor as a result of the impression they have left on me.” -Joy Adams
