Changing the way we care for your family.
The Center for Family Medicine is a group practice staffed by full-time faculty physicians and 24 full-time resident physicians. The Center provides full-scope family medical care that encompasses all age groups. We are adjacent to San Jacinto Methodist Hospital and have full privileges for admission and in-hospital procedures.
We practice Preventive Care for all of our patients. We offer well-person exams as well as acute, chronic and urgent care. Services offered are:
|Diagnosis and Treatment
Maternity care and delivery
We use the team care concept for our practice. Doctors and staff are on the Red, Blue, Green, or Pink team. Patients are assigned to a team doctor. If your doctor is unavailable on the day that you need to be seen, we will place you with another doctor on your team, so that your health care needs are handled by the same staff and doctors.
If you are not able to attend your scheduled appointment, please call and let us know in advance. This will allow us to open up a time slot for other patients needing to see a physician.
You may hear your doctor or nurse use the word "precepting" during your visit. Precepting is when residents discuss and verify your care with a senior faculty physician, this ensures that you are receiving the best and most current treatment. You may experience a longer wait in the exam room. Generally, when you have to wait for a physician they are meeting with other physicians about your care. We want you to know that this is part of the education process and that you, the patient, are the most important part of that process. Be assured that your health care needs are receiving the very best and most up-to-date treatment by at least TWO physicians.
Lab results will be sent to you within two weeks. Once we receive the results, a doctor or nurse will send a letter or call you with the results. If you have not heard from us within two weeks, please give us a call.
