Philosophy

Our philosophy is simple.  Everyone should have a personal Primary Care Provider.  One that is familiar with your unique situation, is easily accessible, responsive and attentive.  A Provider that can help you improve your sense of well being and can treat you as well as help you wind your way through a complicated healthcare environment.  One who’s personal care extends past the hospital door or door of your home.

Our Practice model is built around you, being responsive to your Primary Care needs in a manner that is convenient, personal and easily accessible.  It is also about helping provide solutions to your health concerns.  This is essentially why you ‘hire’ us.  We do this by taking the time to listen to you.  Our Model allows us to answer the phones, communicate via email, return calls and see patients on the same day they call.  It also allows us to follow our patients in hospital, long-term care facilities or in their homes, as well as to be directly available by phone after hours.  We utilize the latest technology, to enhance rather than replace our interactions with our patients.  In partnership with a motivated patient, improved outcomes are assured.  Our offices are small by design. This allows our staff to know all patients when they walk in the door, when the care actually begins.

In a healthcare system in which the average face to face time between Primary Care Physician and patient is less than 10 minutes, and practices are consolidating into larger and larger buildings, difficulties with easy access and continuity abound.  We have developed a different model of practice.  We invite you to come along.

All Healthcare Professionals are, in fact, guest in your lives: sometimes for an hour, frequently for years.  We share in happy times, but most importantly are present during some of life’s most trying times.  We see this as an honor and a privilege.  We would be privileged to be of service to you and your family.

Jim, born and raised on Cape Cod, attended the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine after graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Vermont.  He completed his Family Practice Residency in Baltimore, Maryland in 1990, serving as Chief Resident during this third year.  After enjoying private practice for 5 years, he was one of the first Physicians to form CORE Health Services, a large, multispecialty group, serving on their Board of Directors.   After 10 years as an employed Physician, he established YourMedicalHome as an independent, Primary Care Practice, with a vision of the Patient Centered Model of Care.  He maintains privileges at Exeter Hospital, and has served on Medical Staff Leadership of that institution.

Various experiences, including involvement with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, the Ideal Medical Practices Collaborative, the Dartmouth Cooperative Research Network as well as practicing in a number of different Primary Care Models has provided Jim with a unique perspective into what works, and what does not work, in the Primary Care Setting.  He has found the smaller practice model to be an ideal way to bring innovation in care delivery quickly to where it matters most, the patient.  This can be as simple as a phone system that allows all (including Physicians) to answer the phone, to patient direct online scheduling, to the encouragement of email communication, or to something as ‘old fashioned’ as regularly performing house calls.

Jim believes that excellent and timely communication, easy access and continuity of care are absolutely critical to the care we provide, and believes that all we do should augment these goals.  He enjoys speaking about any issue involving the practice of medicine and greatly enjoys the long term relationships with the patients of the practice, realizing that these insights can be very important in the provision of the care they need, and want.

You may see him jogging, biking or rowing around the Seacoast.  He is married to Casey (see below) and lives in Exeter with Casey and their four children, two girls followed by two boys.

Kareen is an Osteopathic Physician. Growing up in a family of ten children in suburban Boston, she knew that she wanted to be a “Family Doc” since the age of eight. Her background training includes an undergraduate degree in Biology from Saint Michael’s College in Vermont, and a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the University of New England in Maine.  For over 20 years, she has been committed to helping patients achieve better health. Kareen believes that being healthy is a partnership between eh patient and the physician, and is committed to helping guide her patients to a healthier life.  Kareen is passionately interested in preventative care, fitness, exercise and other lifestyle choices that patient make to deal with stresses that contribute to so many illnesses.  She is quick to prescribe lifestyle changes and exercise, and is slower to suggest “fix-it pharmaceuticals” which often only treat symptoms, not their underlying causes.  She has been involved with the developing science of Resiliency Training through the University of Pennsylvania, helping teach these techniques to those in the military.

Kareen lives on the Seacoast of New Hampshire with her husband of over twenty years, Peter.  They are avid cruising sailors, and have cruised from Newfoundland and Labrador, through the coast of Maine, the Caribbean, in Ireland and England, and the South Pacific.  Kareen is committed to physical fitness, particularly enjoys being with her large extended family, reading, photography, travel, amateur woodworking and loves old quilts. Kareen sees patients in the office a couple of days per week, and makes house calls when necessary.  When not in the office, you’ll often find her somewhere on the water!

Casey, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, was born and raised near Washington DC.  She received her Bachelors of Science in Nursing from Fitchburg State College, graduating Magna Cum Laude.  She earned her Masters in Nursing from the University of Maryland while working at Children's Hospital National Medical Center in Washington, DC. Casey has more than 20 years of experience caring for children in the outpatient setting.  This experience, coupled with raising four children of her own, gives Casey ample perspective and empathy, with regards to the unique needs of our pediatric patients and their families.

Casey is married to the ‘other’ Bloomer in the practice and enjoys her large extended family, being the 9th of 10 children.  You might also see her running around town, literally. She values spending ample time with all families to address whatever issues might arise.

Susan, a Family Nurse Practitioner, graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from UMASS, Lowell in 1979. She enjoyed working in a variety of settings including the Greater Lawrence VNA, and during the early 1980s was thrilled to be involved in the planning and development of the hospice program for that organization. While working and raising her children, Sue went back to UMASS to obtain her Masters Degree in Nursing. She has had the pleasure of working for the past 16 years in Family Practice with Michael Lannon, MD, until his retirement in August 2010. She has learned so much over the past 30 years of nursing practice, both from her coworkers and particularly from her patients. Sue believes that listening is crucial to helping people. Sue is very excited to have the opportunity to begin a new chapter here with Jim and his staff – and looks forward to meeting with patients and their families, listening to their concerns and working with them to develop a plan of care to optimize their health. Sue lives on the Seacoast with Tom, her husband of 28 years. They have three grown children and an overgrown Westie. She enjoys being outdoors, walking, hiking, XC-skiing and spending time with her family.
