The physicians
and staff at the
Esse Health Tesson
office believe that
creating a unique
relationship with every child is important for developing
lifelong habits of good health. That relationship begins by
establishing a relationship and open lines of communication
with the parents or guardians of those children. Each child
and family has very different needs and this requires a very
specialized plan of action for each child’s care.
In addition to personalized care, their goal is to provide
children and their family with the best possible health care
experience. From the moment parents and their child step
foot inside the door they will be welcomed as part of the
Esse Health family.

In-Home Care For Loved
Ones At Algonquin Nurses
Home Health Care

Quality Chiropractic
At Back & Neck Care
Center Of Webster Groves

Esse Health Pediatrics &
Adolescent Medicine is
now at a new location!

Algonquin Nurses Home Health Care, Inc., has turned
a vision into reality. Steve Tamboli started Algonquin
Nurses with his mother, Mary Tamboli, RN, as a staffing
agency for nursing homes in the St. Louis area. Quickly
they realized there was a strong calling for private services
Steve and Mary built the company one client at a time,
striving to live up to the name.
“Algonquin Nurses Home Health Care was started with
the goal of providing quality in-home care to loved ones,”
CEO Steve Tamboli said. “A family-owned, local business,
Algonquin Nurses has been serving the Greater St. Louis
and surrounding areas since 1987 when our mother, Mary
Tamboli, and I started Algonquin Nurses.
Soon the business was growing and Steve’s brother,
Mark Tamboli, joined the company — bringing with him
the knowledge of business management and his college
When Mark joined Algonquin Nurses, the Medicaid
Department was just forming. Mark took that division and
expanded the services to eight different Medicaid contracts.
He also started managing the Private Home Health Care
Division. There was such a big need for both divisions that
Algonquin Nurses opened three additional offices covering
14 counties.
About the time Mark started, their sister Anne (Tamboli)
Keathley joined the company to start up the Medicare
Home Health Division (skilled nursing care).
Over twenty-five years since its inception, Algonquin
Nurses has grown into four divisions — private duty,
medicaid, Medicare and consumer directed services — with
four Missouri branches. Algonquin Nurses is now able to
offer a wide variety of services to fit a wide variety of needs.

Back & Neck Care Center of Webster Groves has
been a vital part of the community for 31 years. Founded
in 1984 by Dr. Joseph T. Lane, it is the longest
established chiropractic practice in Webster Groves.
“My wife and I grew up in the St. Louis community,”
said Dr. Lane. “Upon graduation from Logan College of
Chiropractic, I chose Webster Groves for my practice
because it reminded me of Normandy, the community
where I was raised.”
Dr. Lane, also certified in acupuncture, treats each
patient as an individual, tailoring their treatment to that
which is suitable for their condition.
In the operation of his practice, Dr. Lane relies on the
expertise of Linda managing the front desk, Brenda
handling the insurance and De’Shornia (“D”) working
the back office.
“Many of our patients enjoy the camaraderie we all
share with each other,” said Dr. Lane. “We make each
patient feel like family and occasionally go beyond to
make their experience a positive one.”
The Back & Neck Care Center has had the pleasure
of providing service to Webster Groves and its
surrounding neighborhoods for over a quarter of a
century. Their patients generously support their Fan Fare
and Coats for Kids programs year after year, offering
donations to Webster/Rock Hill Ministries. Dr. Lane
and his staff are grateful for these contributions and the
opportunity to be a part of this community.
