North Valley Family Physicians celebrating 20th year
North Valley Family Physicians is celebrating its 20th anniversary in Colusa County.
North Valley Family Physicians was founded in 1991 by Dr. Julian Delgado.
"I was recruited by Colusa Community Hospital as it was referred to back then, and the UC Davis Medical Group, to open a private practice in this area." Delgado said. "They asked me to come to Colusa and reopen the obstetrics department at the hospital, and I did."
His partner is Dr. Michael Goodman, who came aboard in 2000.
"My wife and I visited the area and fell in love with it," Goodman said. "The rest is history."
The practice also includes Krista Taylor, a family nurse practitioner, who joined the team in 2002, and Dr. Antonio Meraz, who joined in 2008
In addition to the Colusa office, North Valley Family Physicians has a satellite office in Williams, and Delgado and Goodman also have an office in Willows as well.
The practice is a Family Medical Facility which offers complete physicals, acute and chronic care, laceration repair and treatment of skin conditions.
It also provides vaccinations, geriatric medicine, and treatment to workman's compensation patients.
North Valley also offers pediatric care, obstetrics and gynecology and in-office surgery.
"In addition to family out-patient care at our Colusa and Williams offices, our three physicians provide after hours care and tend to patients regular hospitalizations at CRMC," said Arlene Arnold, director of operations at North Valley Family Physicians.
