What Is Family Medicine?
Family medicine doctors and nurse practitioners provide patient-centered care for all the medical concerns and conditions a family might experience. This is different from other medical specialties, which typically focus on either a specific type of patient (adults, women, children, etc.), patients with particular types of conditions or providing a particular type of care.
Family medicine often serves as the first step in a patient’s healthcare journey. Our family physicians care for adults and children ages 2 and up.
You’ll have peace of mind knowing a single family medicine practice is familiar with and caring for all your family’s medical needs. We can often schedule multiple appointments with your family members on the same day — a valuable time-saver for those with busy schedules.
We are part of an integrated clinical network that includes specialists, hospitals, home care, laboratory and imaging services. If your condition requires that you see a specialist, we can coordinate your care with specialists within our high-quality network. All our providers use the same medical records to make your care seamless.
Our Healthcare Environment
We are committed to improving your health and wellness, as well as those in our community, by providing quality care in an environment that values:
- Cultural and language diversity
- Educational excellence
As a result, we’re able to establish meaningful relationships with our patients. These relationships help us build trust, which results in better care.
Advanced Practice Providers: A Vital Part of Your Care
We are dedicated to ensuring you have access to the care you need when you need it. That’s why we include advanced practice providers (APPs) in our practice, including nurse practitioners and other professionals. These providers help us expand the level of care we’re able to provide to members of our community.
