How Do We Help

How Do We Help

Family Medicine

At Active Family Healthcare, we are passionate about family medicine. A healthy lifestyle can be achieved across the lifespan, and we believe it is never to early to start! We love working with families to develop new strategies for healthy diet choices and fun ways to get outside and be active together.

When illnesses or injuries do occur, they affect the whole family. Often multiple family members catch the same illness, and we are able to treat parents and children in one convenient location.  When a family member has a serious health challenge, we understand that the whole family has changing health care needs.

At Active Family Healthcare, we love to support your whole family as you grow and change through the years. We are privileged to provide the comprehensive care that helps you thrive in these hectic times.

Wellness & Prevention

Active Family is a comprehensive family medical practice dedicated to helping you manage your health as well as encouraging and supporting you in taking an active role in your own wellbeing.   We have a very holistic approach when doing annual wellness exams, sports exams, and well-child exam that takes a peak at all aspects of your life to provide you with unsurpassed preventative care.  We specialize in preventing diseases, illnesses, and injury by fostering lifestyle habit changes, optimizing nutrition, providing anticipatory guidance, and tailoring exercise programs that have your best interests and needs in mind.  We encourage all our patients to schedule a wellness exam yearly.  We do offer all childhood immunizations also.  If you choose not to vaccinate your children, that is your choice, and we would be glad to still offer help with any other concerns that you have.   We are here to meet your needs!

Acute Care Needs

Acute Care: At Active Family Healthcare, we expect the unexpected. We understand that illnesses and injuries occur at the most inopportune times. We are usually able to schedule an appointment that day or at least that week. We have in-house lab tests, such as urinalysis and and strep swabs, and durable medical equipment, such as walking boots and wrists braces.  This allows us send you on the road to recovery as quickly as possible. 

Chronic Care: We have experience treating a wide variety of chronic illnesses, but we do it a little bit differently. We understand the challenges that come from living with chronic health challenges such as diabetes, hypertension, COPD, inflammatory bowel disease and arthritis. We take the time to listen to your experience, so that we can understand your unique needs. We work with you to create a treatment plan for your chronic conditions that combines leading pharmaceutical options, natural supplements, and lifestyle recommendations.

Sports Medicine

Jen Fletcher has always loved sports medicine.  He undergraduate degree was devoted to sports medicine, and she was an athletic trainer.

Nothing is more fulfilling to her than getting athletes injuries diagnosed properly and helping them on the road to recovery and most back to the sport they love.  Our providers are previous college athletes and Ironman finishers, so they are empathetic and can understand exactly what these injured patients are going through.  We know there is nothing more frustrating than seeing a provider for an injury and their only advice is to “take time off”.    We work together with physical therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, and other specialists including orthopedic doctors to get you healed as quickly as possible. 

We also devote our practice to helping those with disabilities and chronic injury to become more active.  Utilizing alternate forms of exercise and rehab to promote activity and health.

Women's Health

We know that women’s health concerns are a sensitive matter and are sometimes embarrassing topics to discuss with your doctor.  At Active Family we strive to make the process as easy as possible and it starts by having female providers that are empathetic to your situation.  Our providers are trained to do annual breast/pelvic exams/pap smears and also diagnose and treat most female issues and diseases.  We utilize the latest technology, which gives our patients the superior care and treatment they deserve.  As often as possible we like to use natural means to treat our patients, which includes bio-identical hormones.  We recommend all our patients schedule a yearly wellness exam regardless of symptoms in order to prevent diseases or problems, or diagnose problems at the earliest possible time in order to achieve the best outcomes.  We also offer the BRAC test for those women at higher risk for ovarian and breast cancer.

Success Stories

Chris Gordon Family, Coeur d'Alene

We have been with JenniferFletcher for 6 years and followed her to AFH. She and Jessica are caring, respectful practitioners. Jen did and has above and beyond what previousDoctors did not. She helped me when my back went out and sent me to the correct spine doctor to get me back on my feet. As well as seen and helped our 3 kids when they have been sick or injured. Jennifer has also encouraged and guided my husband Chris to stop chewing tobacco. He has been chewing for 25 years. He had a scare on his tonsils which Jen caught and sent him to a specialist, but it wasn't cancer. With Jen's encouragement to quit, he hasn't started back. Amazing staff, all are polite and kind. I have sent many people to AFH and will keep doing so!

Dr. Thomas Tessendorf, Hayden Chiropractor

I am writing this as a personal and a professional thank you to Jessica Laplante FNP-C. Since
moving here in 2014, she has been the medical provider for myself and three generations of my
family. She has always been very helpful with routine and urgent care we've needed. The care
has been done very professionally and leaves no stone unturned. if a referral is warranted she
makes sure it is done in a timely fashion and follows up with us afterwards. !
Due to my personal experience, I've use Jessica for my professional referrals as well. I know
that my patients are in good hands, and will be taken care of in the same manner she provides
myself and my family.!
I put the trust of my family and my patients in her capable hands and expertise.!

Jennifer Fletcher, FNP-C, MN has been my primary health care provider 

for approximately five years.  She is caring and knowledgeable. Jen encourages a healthy lifestyle - both verbally and by offering incentives for participation in local activities.  Her approach is one that actively engages her patients in their own health care decisions.  I also appreciate the prompt reporting of test results and referral(s), as needed.  As a retired nurse-midwife I recognize good health care and I highly recommend Ms. Fletcher and Active Family Healthcare.

I've been working with Jennifer for 18 years. As a healthcare professional I understand the importance of having a dedicated primary care provider that is there for your family when you need them. When my children were younger we saw a pediatrician but I soon realized it made more sense for my entire family to see someone that knows us, knows our family, medical history, and has the personal caring touch to care for my parents ,sisters, brothers, and my husband and children. The practice has same-day appointments and availability so you don't have to go to urgent care and see a provider that knows nothing about your medical history or have your children in an unfamiliar environment when they aren't feeling well. I also love that Active Healthcare promotes prevention,exercise and good nutrition. Jenn talks to my kids about helmet safety, wearing their seat belts and reinforces healthy habits. Thanks Jenn for taking such great care of our family!

Jim Bos, Athol

Where do I begin? About 5 years ago, I was at a point of not knowing if I'd make it through the next night. At the clinic, I met Jennifer and because of her persistence in finding the problem, she basically saved my life. After the major heart center ran every test they had and turned me out their door, undiagnosed. Most medical professionals today are more interested in prescribing drugs to treat symptoms than finding the root problems. Amazing, you take care of the cause, the symptoms go away and don't return. Being an older retried, single man, I don't have a better half to keep in line. So, Jen has kind of taken on that job. In November I came in for a checkup as I was hacking up blood and very short of breath. After a couple test, she informed I was headed to the ER no ifs ands or buts and wasn't driving myself. With pneumonia and blood clots in my lungs and pressure on my heart, I was told by Jen I must have 9 lives, but with the abandon with which I've lived. I probably don't have many left. Twice in 4 years she saved me. So if you're looking for a nonsense healthcare team I highly recommend Active Family Healthcare.

This is a beautiful practice with a heart for people and genuine wellness.
Such a breath of fresh air in a world where healthcare has become a business and medicine purely science rather than care and connection.
I highly recommend Active Family Healthcare with total confidence.

The Wilmes Family, Hayden Lake

Jennifer has been our medical provider for about 7 years. There are many things we like about her beginning with her "down to earth" nature and the fact that she listens to us even if she might not agree.

Our first encounter with this was when I told her that for years other doctors said nothing was wrong with my thyroid but I knew something wasn't right. I'm pretty sure she rolled her eyes (just kidding) but she sat me down and examined my neck and said she felt a lump. She had me referred to a specialist right away. No other doctor found that!

Tony had an injured arm over a weekend and went to an urgent care facility where they said nothing was wrong. His arm didn't improve and looked "off". When he finally called Jennifer, she saw him and determined that he had a detached bicep. The surgeon commented that if Jennifer hadn't caught it when she did, it would have been too late to correct.

Community Involvement

Active Family Healthcare loves to give back to the community. We are often involved in local charities, events, wellness fairs, and races.
Not only do we support our patients participating in local races, but we like to support those who may be just starting their ACTIVE JOURNEY towards being healthier. One of our favorite things to do is *sponsor* people/athletes for races or joining an exercise club i.e. Coeur d’ Alene triathlon club.
We always believe in donating to less fortunate whether it be with our time or monetary donation.
Active Family is proud member of Hayden Chamber of Commerce and BNI. We are official sponsor of the Coeur d’ Alene Tri club as well.
When you see us at a local event please stop by our booth and say Hi.
