MMC Family Practice Clinic currently provides emotional and mental health therapy sessions in order to help people find balance. Our therapists work with adults, teens, adolescents and provide family counseling. Connecting to Care enables us to offer these services to our community via video conference. Connecting to Care is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide health services using innovative technology to connect underserved populations to care.

Our current provider is a Marriage Family Therapist, Sherie Abel, LMFT, with more than 25 years of experience. Sherie has a Master’s in Psychology and a Master’s in School Counseling from the University of San Francisco and a California license as a Marriage and Family Therapist.


Telecardiology offers heart patients an alternative to in-office visits by using a secure, video-enabled device to connect to a Renown heart doctor for specialty care. Patients are seen at MMC Family Practice Clinic, close to work, home, and family, minimizing the cost and time of long-distance travel for heart care. Telecardiology can be used for consultations, examinations, and follow-up appointments with Renown heart doctors. This program is available to patients with Medicare or Commercial Insurance.

For more information regarding our TeleHealth programs, contact Jon Crnkovic at the Clinic at (530) 708-8820.
