Family Medicine of Albemarle would like to thank our patients for voting us a 2019 Gold Award Winner in the Category of Family Medicine. We definitely don’t expect to receive awards for delivering great care, but it’s still nice to be recognized. We’ll try not to let it go to our heads 🙂
There is a lot of data from the world health organization describing how the U.S. citizen pays far more for healthcare than any other developed nation, receives less benefit for their money, and can expect worse long term outcomes on average (see report for more info) But there are a few clinicians in the U.S. healthcare system that buck this trend. This article describes clinicians that sound a lot like the family medicine providers at FMOA, and explains how FMOA providers save you time and money.
Being a family medicine provider is a blessing but I often feel like I’m spinning plates. A few months back I saw this article describing a typical day in a family medicine provider’s life, and why she keeps her patient’s waiting. I could definitely relate to this provider’s experience. Our responsibilities keep us busy but if our patients are patient with us, the blessing of caring for families is worth the plate spinning.
