Find A Medical Provider For Expert Family Care

At the heart of Memorial Health Care Systems are family physicians who specialize in family practice. Family physicians have an incredibly diverse training and experience devoted to comprehensive health care for people of all ages. This includes primary care, disease prevention and health promotion as well as sick visit and urgent care appointments and emergency care.

Choosing a physician is a very personal matter. When it comes time to select a physician for you and your family, it's comforting to know that excellent medical providers are located right here, close to home.

All of the MHCS physicians have selected Family Practice as their specialty because of their commitment to caring for their patient throughout all of life's stages.

Supporting them in your care are PAs (physician assistants) as well as other specialists who provide services on a regular basis at the MHCS Specialty Physicians Clinic.

The MHCS PAs are an integral part of the team of medical providers. The PA is a medical professional who works as part of a team with a physician.  Along with providing support for the physicians in the clinic setting, the PA's perform physical examinations, diagnose and treat illnesses and provide patient education. In addition to seeing patients in the clinics, our PA's can be seen working in the patient wing of Memorial Hospital, the Hospital's emergency department and at local nursing homes.

The Specialty of Family Practice Medicine - Caring for Families of All Ages

As defined by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), a family physician has been educated and trained to provide continuing and comprehensive medical care, health maintenance and preventive services to all members of the family regardless of sex, age and type of problems.

The MHCS physicians are educated in the specialty of family practice. Their residency training provided integrated inpatient and outpatient learning over a period of three years and included extensive in-hospital training in the care of adults and children, maternity care, emergency and critical care and other inpatient situations.

Family practice physicians provide services to all ages within the clinic, hospital, emergency room and nursing home settings. Sometimes referred to as "primary care" physicians, they provide both the first contact for a person with an undiagnosed health concern and continuing care of varied medical conditions, not limited by cause, organ system or diagnosis.
