An advanced electronic medical records system is in place to support Friend-Lantz’s capabilities to provide preventative and diagnostic medical care to patients of all ages.

BHW will provide Saturday and flexible office hours and is committed to keeping costs low with a published common fee schedule. Common adult and pediatric vaccines are kept in stock, medical cannabis certifications are available and the practice is part of a provider network for easy specialist referrals.

Friend-Lantz works in collaboration with Dr. Margaret Kaiser for back-up coverage, oversight of patient care and hospital admission coverage at Garrett Regional Medical Center.
