NP Family Care provides quality family healthcare with a personal touch. Through the use of technology and accessibility, you will be able to work with your healthcare provider to achieve an optimal level of health and wellness. While all areas of family medicine are practiced, special areas of interest include weight loss, management of high blood pressure, diabetes, and cholesterol, pain management, as well as transgender care.
Nurse Practitioners are Advanced Practice Nurses who have educational training to diagnose and treat patients. They treat the whole patient, promoting health and wellness.
Appointments are made to accommodate your schedule as to the best of our ability, with some evening and weekend options available. Technology and telemedicine helps to improve accessibility. If you are interested in this option, please discuss it with Dr. Markwick. Electronic Medical Records are used, with a patient portal available for secure messaging. This facilitates access to your own records as well as the ability to schedule your own appointments online if you choose.
