About Us

We are pleased to announce that Alder Brook Family Health has joined Evergreen Family Health of Williston in order to enable us to focus more on our primary area of expertise: taking care of you and your family. The combined offices will allow us to continue the high quality medical care you receive, and to support the relationship with your current provider. The practitioners and staff at Alder Brook look forward to being your primary care medical office for many years to come. We are all continuing to work at our same location.
