Spring Creek Family Practice

About Spring Creek Family Medical Team

– A Patient Centered Medical Home

Spring Creek Family Practice was founded in 1970 and run as a solo practice for decades.  The practice first partnered with Northern California Medical Associates in 2008. Voted 2011 Best Family Doctors in Sonoma County in North Bay Biz Magazine, our board certified physicians James G. Trapnell, MD, and William A. Markoff, MD, and Nurse Practitioner Jennifer E. Warren, FNP, believe that getting to know their patients and understanding their personal lifestyle goals are the first steps towards providing quality, personalized healthcare.

At Spring Creek Family Practice, physicians and nurse practitioners understand how making healthy lifestyle choices isn’t always easy, but the benefits of leading a healthy life are within everyone’s reach.  For over a decade, Drs. Markoff and Trapnell have had the pleasure of making Sonoma County residents healthier and happier in their day-to-day lives.

Office based prevention and screening programs include general and sports physical exams, routine check-ups, vaccinations, laboratory testing, behavioral healthcare, women’s health, among other primary medical care services.  Early screening and detection can result in less acute episodes of illness that are devastating both physically and financially. Spring Creek Family Practice physicians provide primary healthcare at every stage of life.

Spring Creek Family Practice Patient Care Philosophy

Great healthcare for the whole family starts with a doctor who can explain things in ways that patients can understand.  Our physicians pride themselves on their ability to foster lasting, personalized healthcare relationships with their patients.  Trust, professionalism, and authenticity in the patient-doctor relationship are essential for creating a comfortable, effective environment for providing the best healthcare services.  This requires excellent listening skills, as well as attention to detail.  Our doctors take the time to answer questions, and encourage all patients to discuss any health concerns with their physician.

Exceptional, personalized healthcare for the whole family requires:

  • Dedication to treating the individual as a “whole,” as opposed to just looking at a patient’s symptoms, both physically and mentally.
  • Professionalism and compassion in all interactions with patients, our patients are treated like family.
  • Knowledgable, experienced physicians. Drs. Trapnell and Markoff each have over a decade of experience providing comprehensive family healthcare in Sonoma County.

If you and your family value compassion as well as medical expertise in your primary care physicians, we welcome you to call our office to schedule an appointment (707) 544-3811.
