Our practice consists of four physicians board certified in Family Medicine, as well as two excellent certified Physician Assistants (PA-C) to help provide extended coverage and “same-day” appointments. For your convenience, we also employ a full time certified lab technician so that most of your necessary tests can be performed right in our office – some with STAT results. We also have an in-house X-ray suite and a certified x-ray technician for your radiographic diagnostic evaluations. In addition, we admit and care for our patients at Brandywine Hospital so that there is no interruption in the continuum of care.
Family Practice is the medical specialty which covers the preventative care and the diagnosis and treatment of both acute and chronic illnesses. It involves the entire spectrum of ages and allows families to have a one physician relationship. Family Practice includes Pediatrics and Women’s Health as well as minor dermatologic surgery and sports medicine. Our care, however, does not stop at our office doors as we admit and care for our patients while in the hospital. We feel that if you have entrusted your healthcare needs to us when you are healthy, so much the more we want to care for your needs when you are faced with illnesses requiring hospitalization. We will also continue that same excellent care after your hospital stay if further rehabilitation is necessary as we follow our patients at most local rehabilitation and skilled care facilities. The practice also provides care at many of the assisted living facilities in the area.
To provide timely medical care to persons of all ages and backgrounds, utilizing the most current medical information to offer compassionate care across a continuum of life stages and care settings.
- We seek to provide timely care by offering same-day appointments for urgent needs and by maintaining flexible office hours, including evenings and weekends.
- We believe strongly in the importance of showing compassion to our patients and their family members as we navigate difficult life situations together with them, caring for their physical, emotional, and spiritual health.
- We enjoy offering a continuum of care to people of all age groups, from infancy through adulthood; and in multiple settings, including the office, hospital, assisted care homes, nursing homes, and international medical clinics.
- We strive to stay on the cutting-edge of medical information through compliance with Continuing Medical Education requirements, self-study, peer review, discussions with specialists, and involvement in hospital medicine.
