Knowing you as a person and your family as a whole is what our family medicine providers are all about. A family medicine provider will have a better understanding of your health situation, can communicate with you more effectively and can respond better to situations within your family. Your tests can be done and medical problems treated all in one place, with your provider managing your care all the way through. And when specialty care is needed, your family provider will be at your side, helping you navigate an often complex health-care system.
This approach at OMC allows you to build a long-term, trusting relationship with a provider who understands the entire scope of your health needs, history and concerns.
While many family medicine providers develop expertise in certain areas, such as emergency care, they are also trained to recognize when specialty care is needed, and decide what type of care makes the most sense.
