About Us

Core Medical & Aesthetics

Core Medical & Aesthetics, founded by Laura Clark, APRN, MSN, FNP-C, is a distinctive and family-owned integrated medical practice that stands apart from traditional healthcare models. The core philosophy of the practice is to prioritize individualized care, focusing on treating the root causes of health issues rather than merely alleviating symptoms. Below are some key factors that set Core Medical apart from other clinics:

Our Difference

Key Factors

No Referral Required

Unlike many medical practices that necessitate a referral from another healthcare provider, Core Medical welcomes patients without the need for a referral. This open access makes it easier for individuals to seek the care they require promptly.

Prompt Intake

Core Medical prioritizes getting patients the care they need as soon as possible. In many cases, treatment can begin during the patient's very first visit, reducing the waiting time for those in need.

Individualized Care Plans

There's no one-size-fits-all approach at Core Medical. Each patient receives a personalized care plan tailored to their unique needs and conditions. This commitment to individualized care ensures that every patient's journey is catered to their specific health goals.

Integrated Practice

Core Medical takes an integrative approach to healthcare by offering medical care, manual physical therapy, and spinal decompression all within the same facility. This holistic approach allows for a more comprehensive assessment and treatment strategy.

Daily Team Collaboration

The Core Medical team holds daily meetings to discuss each patient's progress. If a patient isn't responding as expected to treatment, the team makes necessary adjustments to their care plan promptly. This dedication to constant evaluation and adaptation enhances the quality of care provided.

Image-Guided Injections

Core Medical ensures precision and safety by using advanced imaging techniques like ultrasound and fluoroscopy (Mini C-arm or Large C-arm) to guide injections. This real-time visualization minimizes the risk associated with procedures and improves their effectiveness.

In-House X-ray Capabilities

Core Medical has in-house x-ray capabilities, making it more convenient for patients and facilitating faster diagnostic and treatment processes.

In summary

Core Medical & Aesthetics goes above and beyond traditional medical practices by providing accessible, personalized, and integrated care. By focusing on addressing the root causes of health issues and using advanced medical technology, they prioritize the well-being and satisfaction of their patients, making them feel like an integral part of the Core Medical family.
