Hillside Family Medicine

Coastal Hillside Family Medicine is a community-oriented family practice with six Board Certified physicians. Our mission is to improve the health care – and the lives – of the people and the communities we serve.

In addition to our doctors, Hillside Family and Community Medicine's Care Team consists of our practice administrator, Renee Bromley; nurse care manager, Janine Schwartz; nurse practitioner, Karen Schaffran; and dietician/nutritionist, Tanya Solberg.  We are committed to providing you with a personable and welcoming environment for your medical needs.

Health care for all!
Family Medicine is a specialty that provides comprehensive primary care and preventative services to all members of the family – from new babies to grandparents! Family physicians have unique attitudes and skills. They are qualified to care for all family members regardless of sex, age, or type of problem (biological, behavioral, or social). In addition to preventing, recognizing, and treating disease, family physicians work to get to know the family and develop long-term relationships with their patients.

We believe in promoting healthy lives, healthy communities, and healthy schools. Our goal is to help you and your family lead a happy, healthy, productive, and rewarding life. We work with you to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle that will help to prevent injury and disease. In addition to providing quality medical care, we take the time to talk with our patients about “other” parts of life: relationships, lifestyles, habits, working environments, and communities. These broader issues have a very important impact on the physical, social, and emotional well-being of people and their families.

Have no insurance?
The Hillside Health Access Alliance is an innovative, cost-effective way to provide primary health care to people without health insurance, and those with defined contribution plans. Learn more.
