About University Place Medical Clinic



University Place Medical Clinic is a boutique family and internal medicine practice offering quality healthcare services to the residents of University Place and the Greater Tacoma area. With decades of experience in patient-centered health care, the clinic has earned a reputation for excellence. 

In the era when many small practices are shutting down or being acquired by corporations, we take pride in resisting the market forces by adopting a unique and sustainable business strategy which allows us to continue to serve our patients.  We deliver value by combining new technology and traditional patient care. 

Unlike many other clinics, our practitioners spend plenty of time to get to know patients and understand their medical conditions and lifestyle in order to design specific patient-based treatment plans. Our "Smart Schedule Philosophy" allows the providers to establish patient-physician relationship which ultimately leads to effective treatment plans.

Our Vision

We shall be the preferred medical clinic based on the excellence of our clinical staff and our evidence-based and patient-centered care.

Our Mission

The mission of University Place Medical Clinic is to provide the community with patient care the way it used to be before medicine was commercialized.

Our Core Values

  • In the age of corporate greed when revenues influence patient-physician relationship and limit the amount of time doctors can spend with their patients, our clinical professionals spend plenty of time with patients to get to know them, listen to them and to ensure patients understand the treatment plans.
  • Our providers practice medicine based on proven scientific medicine and avoid unapproved and unpromising care. They also take patients’ health seriously when it comes to prescribing control substance.
  • Our staff is respectful and courteous to our patients at all times.
  • We take patients’ feedbacks very seriously.
