Would you like to develop a close relationship
with a physician who can treat your entire family?
Do you want to see a doctor who can offer
comprehensive screenings at your checkup
including routine women’s health and dermatologic care?
Family medicine physicians at Summit Medical Group (SMG) offer an integrated, holistic approach to care that focuses on treating the entire patient and keeping them healthy, rather than specializing in a certain area of the body or condition. They receive extensive training and experience in a variety of fields including adult, pediatric, and gynecological care. Unlike an internist who only treats adults, family doctors see patients of all genders and ages from newborn to seniors.
Your family doctor serves as an advocate for patients who need to navigate throughout the complex medical system. They collaborate with other health care professionals to ensure that you receive the best care possible. Our physicians provide:
