Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP)

The Complete Health Improvement Program (CHIP) was developed by
Dr. Hans Diehl, a Clinical Professor of Preventive Medicine at Loma Linda University in California. CHIP focuses on eating more, but weighing less.
It doesn’t promote limited food intake or counting calories. Instead it promotes eating healthy food, exercise, stress management and maintaining healthy sleep patterns.

CHIP has been around for more than 25 years with more than 75,000 people graduating from the program. It’s taught by physicians, dieticians, wellness coaches or certified CHIP facilitators. The Rochester Clinic offers three different settings to teach the CHIP philosophy. It can be taught at the community level, which is held at Hy-Vee Barlow Plaza, the corporate environment, where companies can hire a CHIP facilitator to instruct members on their lunch hour. Or, CHIP can be taught medically. In this category, a doctor groups patients with similar medical conditions, and they complete the program together.

Family Medicine

Primary care provides comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for patients of all ages.  A primary care provider is the main medical professional you go to for your health needs and serves as the quarterback for your health.  Establishing a relationship with a primary care provider is important for your overall health.  It is particularly beneficial that our family practice emphasizes on wellness and prevention. Our focus is on the patient, and we have a group of easily accessible and compassionate providers to do just that. We provide a wide range of primary care to our patients, from pediatrics to geriatrics, as well as preventative care.
