At our friendly Haddonfield office, your family is a part of our family. Our goals are to make every office visit a pleasant experience and to deliver the finest care for your every need. Our board-certified providers and support staff take the time to know each patient personally. We are your partner in preventive care, working proactively to promote better health for children, teens, women, men, and seniors.
Preventive care, which may include annual check ups, immunizations, screening tests, bloodwork, and an assessment of health issues and concerns, helps us detect and/or prevent serious diseases and medical problems before they can become major. Our goal is to promote your healthy aging, and this is impacted by both preventive care measures and healthy lifestyles. We will discuss what steps you can take to improve your health over time, which may include factors related to eating a healthy diet, staying active, managing stress & other mental health challenges, and avoiding harmful habits or substances. In partnership with you, we can find the best path for your best health.
Same Day Sick Visits

What people are saying...
5 out of 5 stars
"Updated review to 5 stars. Love Dr Wallace. While he's young, he's the best doc I've had in life. With previous doctors, I've felt rushed like it's just a money factory to get to the next patient. Wallace is my guy from here on - he's smart as can be, listens intently to everything I have to say, and not shy about delivering it to me straight. I feel like older doctors feel a need to prescribe a medication just because you showed up and looking for a quick fix. With Wallace's holistic background, he's pushed for me to lose weight on my own instead of just putting me on meds the rest of my life. On top of that, I've seen specialists about certain things, and ultimately Wallace is the guy that fixed my issue. ....and Wallace can beat out my worrisome "Dr. Google" searches all day long. Thanks!"
