Our Practice

Over the years, we’ve treated several generations of families: infants and children, their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents. Next year we’ll celebrate 25 years of serving the health needs of our community, at the same Somersworth location where we first opened our doors in the fall of 1987.

As one of the few remaining family practices independently owned, Salmon Falls has the flexibility to do things differently. Here you’ll find providers who’ll get to know you on a first-name basis and who’ll take the time to answer your questions. We really know our patients: you’re not just a faceless chart or a serial number. Our job is to learn about you as a person, and to listen and respond with thoughtful, compassionate care. That’s the way we’ve been doing business for nearly a quarter-century.

History:

Salmon Falls Family Healthcare was founded in 1987, when Dr. Edwin Charle and Dr. Patrick Clary, who date their friendship back to their Family Practice Residencies in Brooklyn, New York, moved their families to New Hampshire and took over an existing practice.

After 17 years, Dr. Clary left Salmon Falls Family Healthcare to dedicate himself full time to hospice care.

Claire Menard, PNP, joined the group in 1992 after practicing locally in Dover, NH for 7 years.  Marge Pelletier, APRN, began practice at Salmon Falls in 1997, Katrina Diederichs, FNP, CDE joined us in 2002 and Rick Renner, PA in 2006.  In 2009 we welcomed Dr. Bert Cole to the family.

Today, Salmon Falls Family Healthcare utilizes state-of-the-art electronic medical records, in-house billing, scheduling, physical therapy and our own CLIA-compliant lab facility providing shorter wait times, convenience, and consistency of care.

Salmon Falls Family Healthcare is the oldest independent family practice in the area and employs over two dozen staff members.

Our Mission:

To foster a working environment based on integrity, mutual understanding and trust, utilizing open, direct, and inclusive communication, for the purpose of providing high quality, comprehensive care in a family practice setting.

Insurance

Salmon Falls accepts a wide variety of insurances for your convenience, and our friendly billing staff is just a phone call away. We use a sophisticated electronic medical records system that helps us manage your care efficiently, promptly, and securely.
