Call now for an appointment!
"Over three decades I’d lived in San Jose, CA there was no one like this medical office, wait time is short, and very professional staff. Referred by a doctor to go see Dr. Mosson and I did. I am glad that I met an excellent doctor, very detailed, cared and responsive to my calls and very helpful."
“Wow is all I can say! I have been to the new (Valley Springs) Health and Wellness Center 2 times recently and have to say I am so impressed. Wait times are short, staff is not only professional but incredibly friendly and their clinic is equipped with some high tech medical gear, which is new to Calaveras County.
Dr. Robbins is an amazing doctor who takes his time with each patient, connects with the children he is seeing, and most importantly actually listens to concerns parents might have. I highly recommend this medical facility.”
"The dental office is second to none, the dental hygienist is the best I've ever had." _________________________________________________________________________________________

Hola pacientes de Valley Springs:
Lamento informarle que la Sra. Mazzetto ya no trabaja en el Centro de Salud y Bienestar de Valley Springs. Ya hemos identificado un nuevo proveedor que es excelente en todos los sentidos. El momento de esa transición de la atención aún está en discusión y probablemente ocurrirá en enero o febrero. Mientras tanto, haremos todo lo posible para garantizar que tenga suficientes medicamentos y acceso a atención y pruebas. Si ya tiene alguna prueba o consulta programada, debería poder continuar con ella y revisaremos los resultados. Pido disculpas por cualquier inconveniente que esto pueda causarle; Estamos muy orgullosos de la calidad de la atención que brindamos y podemos asegurarle que haremos todo lo posible para brindarle la mejor y más segura atención posible. No dude en comunicarse con nuestra gerente de la clínica, Tina Terradista (209 772-7070), si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud.

We are definitely seeing more positive Covid cases at the clinic (and throughout the county), but rest assured we manage those patients by evaluatinand testing them in their cars in the parking area. Our clinic is safe and clean:it is scrubbed down every night by a professional cleaning team. We’re not aware of any Covid cases that have been transmitted from the clinic.

A lifetime commitment to health and wellness

Dr. Randy Smart is a fourth-generation physician raised in Calaveras County – from great-grandfather on down. “My grandfather was an internist specializing in tuberculosis,” he shared. “He moved our family to Calaveras in 1926 and started the Bret Harte Sanitorium in Murphys. It’s an interesting story – it was determined that TB patients needed less oxygen and that the 2,000- foot elevation was best. So, sanitoriums were moved to that elevation across the country. My grandfather is my hero.” . . .

Healthy Hearts, Healthy Years: Why Heart Health Matters As We Age
As we grow older, maintaining a healthy heart is key to living life to the fullest. Eating nutritious foods, staying active, managing stress, staying socially connected, and limiting alcohol help us take care of our cardiovascular health and overall wellbeing. Adopting these positive lifestyle changes reduces major risk factors for heart disease and stroke.
The good news is, it's never too late to start improving our cardiovascular health. Even small tweaks to our daily routine can make a difference so we can add healthy years and continue doing what we love longer.
