From infants to adults, we treat the whole person for a complete approach to healthcare – focusing on physical health and everything else that goes with it.

Why family medicine?

When you choose a family medicine provider for your primary care needs, you get a medical partner for every stage of life – someone who sees the full picture of your health and the emotional, behavioral, and mental factors that impact it. Our family medicine providers offer comprehensive, continuous healthcare for all stages of your care journey.

Preventative care services

Associates in Family Medicine strongly believes that good health begins with good preventative care. We’ve seen that it’s better to prevent illness and injury whenever possible, rather than focusing solely on curing patients or treating their symptoms. We recommend the following preventive care for families.

Primary care vs. urgent care

When should you see your primary care provider vs. visiting an urgent care clinic? Make an informed decision about where to go for care. And of course, call 911 or visit the nearest emergency room immediately if you’re experiencing a severe or life-threatening illness, major trauma, or injury such as chest pain, severe abdominal pain, head trauma, loss of consciousness, or uncontrolled bleeding.
