West Front Primary Care P.L.L.C
What is Family Practice?
Family practice combines general medicine, pediatrics, minor surgery, gynecology, and social and behavioral sciences.
Family practice physicians establish lifelong relationships with patients. Their specialty is treatment of families and individuals at every stage of life and in many circumstances. These relationships provide physicians and nurse practitioners with a basis for decisions in each patient's lifelong care, fostering a partnership between the healthcare provider and patients.
Nurse practitioners approach health care from a nursing perspective that is also holistic. Nurse practitioners are Masters-prepared RNs with advanced skills in physical assessment. They are qualified to diagnose and treat acute minor illnesses; manage stable, chronic diseases; and educate and counsel patients. Their collaborative relationship with physicians allows them to provide many of the same services provided by physicians.
The health-care providers at West Front Primary Care emphasize disease prevention and health maintenance. We provide services that begin in infancy with newborn and well-baby care, and continue into the senior years of life.
