At Luz Medicine, we place patients at the center of their medical care. They are able to schedule their own appointments at any time, connect with their doctor after hours, and they have the time and space they need during appointments. From a practical standpoint it makes sense for us to listen to our patients: they will be happier when given the common courtesy of being listened to. And, from a medical perspective, we know that if we listen to our patients, they will tell us what is wrong and we can then begin to help them.
Luz Medicine looks forward to establishing itself as a trusted source of healthcare to our patients and our community. We equip patients in their health journey by providing them ample information in a transparent manner. We enable patients to actively guide and direct their own health care, while being supported by professionals who understand the science behind their medical concerns and care deeply about their well being. In short, we believe that together we are stronger.
We look forward to hearing from you, learning your story, and discovering how we can help you improve and sustain your health.

Naming a business is like naming a child, you want the name to have meaning, to capture the singular uniqueness of that person, and all that you hope they embody for the future and their life.
Similarly, much has gone into the creation of this practice. Like the child you hope for over many years, we have been planning, discussing, and carefully anticipating Luz for quite some time. As a result, much hope exists for how Luz will impact individuals, families, and our community by those she serves.
At its essence, "luz" is a common Spanish and Portuguese word that means "light." In other languages, it means "strong city" or "almond tree." These meanings provoke images of discovery and truth, strength and protection, life and growth.
That is exactly what we want to bring to you.
As representatives of Luz, we help you uncover health issues and discover solutions. We recognize the inherent strength of each person - empowering individuals to understand their health, listening to them as experts on their own bodies, and equipping them to make informed, wise decisions. Life and growth spur from our approach; and we nurture one another and our community in so doing.
A word with the most natural expression of all the ways we care for you, the ways we seek to help, the ways we look forward with you towards a bright future.
