The Family Medicine Center is equipped with 2 procedure rooms, 24 exam rooms, video colposcopy, video flexible sigmoidoscopy, computerized treadmill, ultrasound machine, splinting and casting supplies, manipulation table, laboratory, and x-ray room. You will be assigned patients who you will continue to follow throughout your three years. You will also see inpatient, obstetrical, and newborn patients for follow up visits in the Family Medicine Center. Continuity of care is emphasized as well as caring for the whole family.
