Family Medicine

At Coss County Family Practice, we provide continuing and comprehensive pediatric and adult health care, including most preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic services for a wide array of acute and chronic problems. As family physician, we are dedicated to treating the whole person.

Unlike other specialties that are limited to a particular organ, disease, age or sex, family medicine integrates care patient information for both genders across the full spectrum of ages within the context of community and advocates for the patient in an increasingly complex health care system.

Family medicine is a medical specialty devoted wholly to comprehensive health care for people of all ages. It is the primary division of health care that provides continuing and comprehensive care for the individual and family across all ages, genders, diseases, and parts of the body.

Care is based on knowledge of the patient in the context of the family and the community, emphasizing disease prevention and health promotion. The aim of Family Medicine is to provide personal, comprehensive, and continuing care of the individual throughout every stage of life. Cross County Family Practice at Cross County Medical Care is especially devoted to making every patient's needs and concerns a priority. We are a certified Patient Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The Patient Center Medical Home (PCMH) program encourages and facilitates partnerships between individual patients and personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient's family.

Patient-Centered Medical Home


The patient-centered medical home is a way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication to transform primary care into "what patients want it to be." Medical homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs, and can improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care. NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition is the most widely-used way to transform primary care practices into medical homes. Learn More >>
