Dr. Lauren Vigna and Julio Martinez, FNPFirstCare Family Practice is now a “Well-Only” Practice. What this means is our Family Practice will not be seeing any patients who are presenting with respiratory illnesses. Employees are monitored for fever and will not be permitted to work if ill. We will continue to provide all aspects of family practice including physicals, Lyme disease, anxiety and depression, medication refills, and vaccinations. Our family practice is holistic based and is open and available for new patients and existing patients with same day/week appointments.
