Family Medicine Center
E. Blair Warner Family Medicine Center
As a resident at Memorial, the E. Blair Warner Family Medicine Center will be the base for your ambulatory patient care continuity experience. This busy practice is home for both resident and faculty physicians. We are conveniently located directly across the street from Memorial Hospital. We are a Patient Centered Medical Home.
The Center is in the midst of expansion and we are nearly doubling our space with new construction. We are going from 18 to 28 exam rooms, adding a second surgical procedure room and a radiology suite. We are excited about our growth. Our clinic population is diverse across medical conditions, ages, gender and ethnicity and includes large pediatric and obstetrical panels. We continually strive to incorporate preventive medicine into our patient care, and we use a fully intregrated electronic health record system.
Each clinic is staffed by two family medicine physicians, either faculty or community preceptors, who are readily available to discuss patient care and to teach and supervise office procedures. Your obstetrics and gynecology education and experience are supplemented by the availability of OB preceptors several times per week in our clinic. Our Behavioral Science Director in the clinic supports the development of strong patient-physician relations and communication.
Group visits are offered for our patients with diabetic and congestive heart failure. These provide opportunities for improved patient education and instruction. These visits are based on the centering concept that integrates health assessment, education and support. Our team of health care providers includes physicians (including residents), a nurse practitioner, nurses, counselors, social workers, dietitians and an ambulatory pharmacist working together to provide services for our patients.
