We provide continuing and comprehensive pediatric and adult healthcare, including most preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic services for a wide array of acute and chronic problems. As family physicians, we are dedicated to treating the whole person. Family medicine’s cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focused on integrated care. Unlike other specialties that are limited to a particular organ, disease, age, or sex, family medicine integrates care and patient information for both genders across the full spectrum of ages within the context of the family and community. In addition, it advocates for the patient in an increasingly complex healthcare system.
With an emphasis on disease prevention and health promotion, family medicine aims to provide personal, comprehensive, and continuing care of the individual throughout every stage of life. We are especially devoted to making each individual patient’s needs and concerns a priority.
The first year of your newborn’s life is a time of rapid growth and development, which is monitored and enriched at each wellness visit. Social, emotional, and developmental well-being principles are introduced and reinforced. We can ensure that your newborn or child receives exceptional care from our many capable physicians and health professionals. We are dedicated to providing individualized newborn and pediatric care that is best for your child’s health and well-being. Our services support and aid your child’s development and growth from infancy to childhood. These services include:
Adolescent health encompasses an essential transition from childhood to adulthood. During this transition, adolescents establish patterns of behavior and make lifestyle choices that affect both their current and future health. It is our goal as your family medicine provider to assist the adolescent during this transition phase by offering education, medical support, and resources. Some important areas to address are:
General physical health and nutrition: physicals, immunizations, well child exams, treatment of minor illnesses and injuries, assessment & treatment of eating disorders and nutritional concerns
Mental health and substance abuse: coping skills, stress management, drug and alcohol usage education
ADD/ADHD: mental and emotional well-being, severity, prevalence, difficulty learning, understanding, or paying attention, medication
Sexual health: pubertal development, sexual identity, STDs and HIV education, sexuality education, contraception, menstrual health
Violence: offenders and victims of bullying, psychosocial health, health and safety issues
Our providers are skilled in evaluating patients for sleep disorders and can assist you with arranging diagnostic studies.
Women’s health covers many areas including menstrual disorders, contraception/diaphragm fitting, menopause, and breast issues. Services provided to address these areas include mammograms, pap smears, colonoscopy, endometrial biopsy, IUD insertions, and check-ups and screenings for breast, cervical, uterine, and ovarian cancers. We also offer the entire spectrum of women’s healthcare including GYN check-ups and management of any related health issues.
We provide medical and preventive care for all age groups and encourage a healthy lifestyle and health maintenance for every patient.
Cardiovascular disease is an umbrella term for more than 60 different conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels. Treatment is tailored to each patient’s needs and can include lifestyle changes, medication, surgeries, or rehabilitation. As with any health condition, prevention and a healthy lifestyle are encouraged to decrease the possibility of developing cardiovascular disease in the first place.
We provide comprehensive cardiac evaluation and risk factor assessment. This includes identification of personal factors that increase the chance of developing heart disease, a cardiac exam with EKG, and an estimation of heart disease risk over 10 years. Our physicians and clinicians are dedicated to partnering with each patient to provide the personalized quality care and treatment plan best suited to every need.
We are focused on providing you with care that is tailored to your needs. We can frequently perform necessary surgical procedures right in the office at a time that is convenient for you. Examples of available procedures and surgeries may include echocardiography, injections, joint aspiration, lacerations/sutures, cryotherapy for lesions/cysts/warts, mole biopsy and excisions, nail removal, physical therapy, splinting, IUD insertion/removal, and vasectomy.
