Family Practice

Primary Care Services for Patients of All Ages

Family Practice at The GW Medical Faculty Associates aims to provide you with individualized care that sees you as a part of your family and your community. We focus on the whole body, and understand the interconnectedness of your health, while factoring in the external influences in your life. Our holistic approach intends to provide information on disease prevention for you in addition to diagnosing and treating any illness you may experience. Our family practice is a division of primary care that provides health care for all ages, genders, and for all of the body, throughout your life.

Our family physicians are also connected to specialists when you need them, all coordinated through your primary doctor. By having your health information in one place, your doctor can help you manage a chronic disease and sometimes even prevent it. Our family practice works together with you as a team of providers to help you manage your health, stay healthy, and prevent serious illness to stay out of the hospital.
