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.
Jen Fletcher has always loved sports medicine. Her 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 his/her 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.
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 to 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.

Fatigue is a very common complaint to see in our practice. At Active Family Healthcare, we look for mental and physical clues that could be causing your fatigue such as, lack of sleep, poor diet, and stress among others. We also do a thorough physical exam to look for disease processes that could cause fatigue such as thyroid enlargement related to thyroid disease or pale skin related to iron deficiency anemia. We then usually recommend a full blood panel which may include your: CBC, CMP, TSH, thyroid antibodies, Vitamin D, B12, Folic Acid, Iron studies, MTHFR mutation, hormone levels, inflammation and autoimmune markers.
Most patients are relieved when they see us and happy that we look at fatigue seriously and offer a comprehensive work up. Often, they have seen another provider who has told them to get more sleep and they will be fine or tell them they are tired because they have children but offer no solutions. Our solutions at Active Family are tailored at identifying and meeting the problem. Often, we offer natural remedies such as specific vitamins that, with our help, can increase your energy levels.
