About Us

Providing Excellence & Equality in Healthcare

Inspired by Nurse Practitioner, Robert “Francis” Mijares, the late owner and founder of Zest Family Practice.

Francis was a pioneer in Advanced Practice Nursing and an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community. He grew a large following in his clinic and was joined by other providers which included his sister and fellow Nurse Practitioner, Raissa Behm and  Ashley Whatley NP.

Francis had a dream of providing first-class, inclusive and individualized care to everyone. He believed that the primary care office should be a place “where family feels at home”. 

Pride Family Medicine was created through our dedication to continue excellent care to our community and we look forward to honoring Francis by helping out patients achieve their health and wellness goals. 

Helping the underdog will always be a passion for me because I found my strength from being one.
