Family Practice Partners

August, 2017: Family Practice Partners is pleased to announce they are again the recipients of the Best Practice Award given each year by PPRNet, a national research group dedicated to combining research with improving healthcare.  This award is given to practices in the top 10% of the practices in the research group. Our patients are much more likely to be up-to-date with immunizations, Pap smears, mammograms, as well as cholesterol, prostate cancer, colon cancer and blood pressure screening than most patients.  Our patients are receiving excellent care for diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and other chronic diseases, as well as being given excellent care of respiratory illnesses, depression, tobacco and alcohol abuse.

    Link here to a video about the patient-centered medical home.  Our practice is a national leader in changing how medicine is practiced to make the patient the center of medical care.  Our team of physicians and staff focus on caring for the whole person, provide access when the patient wants to be cared for (in the office or online), focus on quality and safety, and coordinate with other medical providers.  We're known for using up-to-date technology to improve care and access.
