We are a small two provider private practice. We opened our doors January 15th 2001. Dr.Schiff-Slater and Dr.Murray-James received their medical doctorates from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Dr. Schiff-Slater completed his residency at the Maine Dartmouth Family Practice Residency Program in Augusta, Maine. Dr.Murray-James completed his residency program in Lewiston.
Our approach to scheduling is called open access. The theory behind this is that if you want to be seen, we will do our best to see you within 24 hours of calling during a workweek. If it is for an emergency, it would be sooner. This is something that we are still experimenting with and have not yet perfected. It highlights our strong desire to provide timely appointments.
It is our goal as a practice to provide outstanding care in a relaxed and personalized and caring environment. If there are suggestions that you might have for improvements, please do not hesitate to share them with us.

We are a Private Practice
As such, we are responsible for all the goings on in our practice. In essence, "The buck stops here".
If there is something that you are not satisfied with regarding how you are treated, the surrounding
environment, etc. We would like to hear about it. The private practice model also carries with it a strong
commitment to staying in this area, we are here for the long run..
