We are proud to offer family practice medicine at the majority of our satellite clinics, making services available for the entire family in each community. Our family physicians are devoted to providing personal, comprehensive and continuing care for people of all ages in the context of the family and the community. These warm professionals emphasize disease prevention and health promotion with a strong foundation in primary care ethics, and are often best qualified to serve as the patient’s advocate in all health-related matters, including the appropriate use of consultants, health services and community resources.
