Family Medicine Services and Treatments

A primary care provider is just that – the first person you go to for health questions and concerns. When you choose one of our primary care providers, you form a relationship with someone who knows your history and is here for you, year after year.

Family medicine care

Our family medicine doctors manage your and your family’s total health. Unlike other physicians who specialize in treating one particular organ or disease, your family physician is uniquely trained to care for you as a whole person, male, female, child or senior.

What we offer

In addition to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic illnesses, your family physician provides routine health screenings and counseling on lifestyle changes in an effort to prevent illnesses before they develop. And, if a health condition arises that requires care from another specialist, your family physician will be there to guide you and to coordinate key aspects of your care. You and your family physician will work together to achieve the best possible outcome in the most cost-effective manner.

Services include:

  • Adult physical – Patient is 18 and above and needs a routine check-up, work physical or well woman exam. This appointment often includes preventive screenings, immunizations and health risk assessments.
