Quality LifeFor Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) Darlena Pike of Quality Life Family Practice (1201 NE 7th Street), providing quality primary health care is not just a job.

“It is my ministry,” said Darlena, who went to RCC for her nursing degree and has been a Nurse RN since 1994 and an FNP since 2011. “Quality Life Family Practice is faith-based, and we are here to provide affordable, accessible, and quality primary care to all of our patients. Only God can guarantee quantity of life, and it is our mission to help patients achieve and maintain their quality of life. We opened this practice in October 2020.”

Darlena and her husband Richard, who is a partner in the practice, have lived in the Rogue Valley for 32 years. “We moved here to raise our children in a kinder place,” she said. “We moved from the Bay Area where there were a lot of drugs and violence. We love the Rogue Valley, and we love our children and grandchildren, who are my joy.”

Darlena and her staff provide dedicated patient care for pain management and simple procedures like nebulizer treatments, simple lacerations, and collections of specimens, including blood draws. They also offer annual well checks, annual Medicare Wellness, chronic conditions management, DOT Physicals, and joint injections.

“We are a small, family-oriented business, and new patients are always welcomed,” Darlena said. “We treat each patient with respect and dignity. Providing timely access to health care is our mission. We also accept most major insurance. We care and treat all patients as a whole—physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. We believe that providing quality and accessible health care is our main purpose for being here.”

At Quality Life Family Practice, the accent is on community. “When you choose us, you join a community,” Darlena said. “We work not just with you but with other members of our community to build a network of people working together for a healthier world. No matter what your health needs are, having a team support you will keep you on the path to meeting them. We work together to connect you with the services you need.”
