When the World Health Organization defined "wellness" in 1948, it wrote that “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” At Family Medicine and More, that definition guides everything we do.
Looking Beyond Illness
The key to wellness is to think of it as something more than the opposite of sickness. A person can be unwell without suffering from an obvious illness or injury. Hidden problems that have never been diagnosed may reduce that person's quality of life.
When you come to our clinic, we'll get to know you. We'll learn about your history and your current problems, and we'll see how you interact within your social circles. Once we've unmasked the whole person, then true healing can begin.
Achieving Wellness Through Balance
Our goal is to work with you to go beyond diagnosing an illness. We help you find the imbalance, excess, or deficit that's causing you discomfort. Once you know the cause, you can begin to restore the balance.
In our clinic, you get the best of modern medicine and alternative treatments. If a pill or an injection will help, we'll use that solution. If you seek health, healing, and wellness, we'll take you through a process that helps you identify whatever interferes with your well-being.
