Q: Tell us more about Phoenix Family Medical Clinic?
A: The Phoenix Family Medical group has been providing quality medical care to patients in Phoenix and was looking to expand into an area that was in need of quality family medical care. So, I joined forces with them to combine their practice efficiency and my expertise in family practice and open a clinic focused on patient care above all else. Our clinic is completely digital and uses no paper charts; we use an EMR (Electronic Medical records) system to manage patient history, diagnosis, prescriptions and follow ups. We serve the Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa Gilbert, Chandler, Ahwatukee, Laveen, Scottsdale and South Phoenix areas.
Q: Does Phoenix Family Medical Clinic accept Walk ins and Same day appointments?
A: We are a Family clinic that accepts Walk Ins and offers convenient evening hours. We provide medical care to all ages; from infants to seniors. We provide immunizations, physicals, treatment of chronic conditions, treatment of hypertension and diabetes, perform clinical procedures and offer Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy. We also do Well Women gynecology exams, including pap smears and Well Child exams in the clinic. My emphasis has always been on disease prevention with life style changes, rather than focusing on drug interventions. I am a patient advocate and pay particular attention to individualized care. My colleague, Dr. Napoleon Ortiz, MD and I will be focused on your medical treatment with a holistic view of overall health. Patients can now book appointments on our website through an online scheduler or call our clinic number. You can click here to book an appointment 24/7.
