Welcome to WMed's Family Medicine Clinic
At WMed's Family Medicine Clinic, our focus is on preventative medicine. We provide for your overall healthcare needs when you are ill and when you are well. We also guide you through the complex healthcare system and coordinate health services by making arrangements with specialists when appropriate. WMed's Family Medicine Clinic believes in immunizations as a protection against preventative disease processes.
Our clinic has undergone a transformation to a patient-centered medical home (PCMH). A patient-centered medical home is a way to deliver coordinated and comprehensive primary care to participants of all ages — children, youth and adults. It is a partnership between individuals and families within a healthcare setting, which allows for a more efficient use of resources and time to improve the quality of outcomes for all involved through care provided by a continuity care team.
Family Medicine is a specialty that provides comprehensive care for your family and its individual members, from birth through geriatric years. Fostered by the family practice philosophy, we can appreciate the relationships and history of your whole family to better coordinate your care. We partner with you to make decisions and we are recognized by insurers as primary care providers.
Family physicians complete a three-year residency program after graduating from medical school. As part of their residency, they participate in integrated inpatient and outpatient learning and receive training in six major medical areas: pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, psychiatry and neurology, surgery and community medicine. They also receive instruction in several other areas, including geriatrics, emergency medicine, ophthalmology, radiology, orthopaedics, otolaryngology, and urology. Because of their extensive training, family physicians are specialists qualified to treat most ailments and provide comprehensive healthcare for people of all ages.
