When you have a medical emergency, waiting is out of the question. That’s why the doctor is always “in” at Lakewood Ranch Urgent Care. From that cold you just can’t kick to skinned knees, bumps, bruises and “might be brokens,” there is always one place in Lakewood Ranch where you will find considerate, expert care, ready to serve you seven days a week, 8 AM to 8 PM, no appointment necessary!
The Call To Do More
Certified medical lab technician, Eric Folkens, knew the hospital lab tests he was performing were important. But Eric believed he was being “called” to know more – to do more – to help the patients whose tests he was processing. Less than ten years later, he had answered that call to become DOCTOR Eric Folkens.
Dr. Folkens’ next step in answering his call to help those patients was to open Lakewood Ranch Urgent Care. “I had a need to go beyond the testing and get into working directly with the patients,” said Dr. Folkens. “I was really drawn to the interactive aspects of it, developing deeper relationships with different patients every day.”

To hear her clients tell it, Certified Public Accountant Kathy DeStefano is just this side of sainthood. A seasoned number cruncher they would cross the country to visit, and a professional bean counter who excels at being “warm, compassionate and accurate…”
Those descriptions are no surprise to Kathy. She built her team and her business around developing relationships, anticipating her clients’ needs and getting it right the first time. All her work is 100% Guaranteed. Kathy said she can make that guarantee because she personally checks all outgoing work before it leaves the office.
If it isn’t perfect, it isn’t finished.
Developing a passion for perfection
Kathy took her first accounting class as a freshman in high school. Add her love of math PLUS her knack for details PLUS her naturally logical personality… and the sum total is SOME total.
“I know it sounds strange, but from fourteen years of age, I just knew what I wanted to do,” said Kathy. “I loved math through high school and went on to major in Accounting in college. I never wanted to be anything else.”

“It’s been very gratifying being a real family business,” Vern said. “The kids have grown up in the industry. Daughter, Missy, is our showroom manager. Son, Mike, supervises up to fifteen crews of installers. My other son, Mark, heads up our cleaning division. It works, because we all share a commitment to total customer satisfaction. Of course, we’d better! Over 80% of our business is based on referrals,” Vern laughed.

Nothing is more important than family.
Our family is there to strengthen us through trials, celebrate with us in the good times and stick with us through the rough patches. When a member of our family loses some or all of the ability to help themselves, we want to do our best to allow them to live life on their terms and allow them the most independence possible.
Every situation is different, and every person has unique needs, but no matter what challenges your loved one may be facing, Doug Drabina and Family First Home Care can help you determine the best course of care that offers the optimum level of independence for your loved one.
“My favorite part of this business is watching the human spirit respond to hope. If there is any way to keep someone in their home, I will find it.”
Quality care comes from quality caregivers
Doug knows his clients want to see familiar faces, caregivers they recognize and know they can trust. “Our employees are subject to more background checks than most companies, as well as clinical and personality testing to make sure they are the best fit for our company, because of this they stay with us.”
