When you enter the Family Medicine Center as a patient, you and your family are assigned to a family physician who will become your personal healthcare provider. Quality of care is enhanced when the physician knows and serves the family over a period of time.
Your doctor is part of a team of physicians who work closely together. If for any reason your regular physician is not available, one of the other members of the team will take care of you. If a specialty physician, test, or procedure is not available at the Family Medicine Center, you will be referred to the appropriate specialist. Your family physician will remain in contact with you, your family members and the specialist during your treatment. The family physician will continue to provide your care when the specialist is no longer required.
Our friendly staff offers high-quality, compassionate care to all of our patients. In addition to physicians, our professional staff includes registered and licensed practical nurses, certified medical assistants, a dietitian, a social worker and a psychologist. A physician is on call 24/7 to provide care and treatment in case of emergency.
