About Us

Providing Excellence & Equality in Healthcare

Pride Family Medicine & Aesthetics is your local, go-to place for Primary Care and Aesthetics services. We take pride in serving our community and our goal is to provide personalized, accessible and professional care in a relaxed and inclusive atmosphere.

The word ‘pride’ means different things to different people and we strive to encompass all of its meanings in our daily business and interaction with our patrons. We take ‘pride’, a deep satisfaction, in providing excellent medical care to everyone we see and helping them to achieve their health goals. We strive to provide a place where everyone can show their ‘pride’, confidence and self-respect, for who they are and who they want to be. For everyone that walks through our doors, we invite you to be part of our Pride Family.

At Pride Family Medicine, you are so much more than just a patient and we believe that medical care should be accessible and centered around your personal journey. We are here for your all of your routine medical screening and chronic care management. Additionally, we offer hormone evaluation and therapy (HRT/TRT), PEP/PrEP and certified HIV specialty care. We also offer a variety of professional aesthetic services including Botox and fillers, facials, laser hair and tattoo removal and many other treatments.

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

Robert “Francis” Mijares, FNPZest Family Practice Founder

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 our patients achieve their health and wellness goals.
