The term "family doctor" elicits images of a time when doctors traveled by horse and buggy to care for patients in the comfort of their own home. While times have changed, a family's need for personal, quality health care remains. The Polyclinic's family medicine physicians believe that establishing relationships with your entire family builds a foundation for a lifetime of health and wellness. Patients enjoy building that bond with their family medicine physician and parents especially appreciate the convenience of having one doctor for everyone in the family.
The Polyclinic family medicine practice encompasses all areas of primary care for all ages from newborns to seniors including preventive care, managing chronic conditions, pediatrics and adolescent health, women's health and gynecology, men's health, and sexual minority issues. In addition, several of our family medicine physicians also practice obstetrics, providing comprehensive care for women throughout pregnancy and childbirth, as well as caring for the baby afterwards. In addition, since family medicine physicians do not share call duties like other groups, they make every effort to deliver for their own patients.
The Polyclinic family medicine physicians are also equipped to perform minor outpatient surgical procedures including no-scalpel vasectomies, and cosmetic procedures including Botox, hair/mole removals, sclerotherapy, and treatment of spider veins. They also offer specialized treatments such as the medical management of obesity. Because The Polyclinic is part of a multispecialty physician group, your family medicine physician collaborates with our specialty physicians and can quickly connect you with one of our own doctors for a specialty care consult or treatment.
Whatever the care might be, our family medicine physicians look forward to helping you and your family maintain optimal health by providing comprehensive and high quality care.
