Invested in your family’s wellbeing

Tift Regional Health System has merged the Center for Healing and Wellness with Tift Family Medicine to form a new powerhouse practice.  Family physician Kathleen Richardson, MD and family nurse practitioners Deidre Dorman, FNP-C and Tess Goodwin, FNP-C are available to provide quality primary care for the entire family.

Dr. Richardson, Deidre, Tess and the entire team hold strong beliefs about the way medical services should be delivered. This means that patient-centered care is the highest priority. The team remembers that each patient is an individual, a member of a family, and a part of a larger community. It’s important to recognize that each patient requires a varied amount of physical, emotional and social support.

The center’s goal is to help patients achieve optimal health through promoting healthy lifestyle and disease prevention. The team cares for patients when they are sick and when they are well, striving to provide topnotch, compassionate care through open communication and respect for concerns.
