We’re so glad you stopped by!

McCain Whole Health Care is a family medicine practice with a unique approach to care. We offer a membership model by which members pay a reasonable monthly fee and have diverse opportunities to access their physician – including office visits, telehealth, text, phone, and email. We even make house calls!

Dr. Arlene McCain is committed to creating safe spaces where health and healing can occur.

It’s only when we feel safe that we can touch the hurting places with love. And it’s only when we persevere in the hard work of re-integrating mind-heart-body-spirit that deep, lasting healing occurs.

Dr. McCain has created multiple safe spaces for others. These include:
