Family practice physicians at Pella Regional and our family of clinics located in Pella, Bussey, New Sharon, Knoxville, Monroe, Ottumwa and Sully emphasize preventative care and long-term relationships between patients and physicians. Because of their extensive training, family practice physicians provide comprehensive health care for people of all ages - from newborns to seniors.
Family practice physicians deliver a wide spectrum of care services. They diagnose and treat illnesses and provide preventative care such as well-child visits, health-risk assessments, and immunization and screening tests. They also provide personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, managing chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension and coordinating care provided by other subspecialists.
Family practice is the medical specialty that provides continuing and comprehensive health care for individuals and families. Unlike other specialties that are limited in scope, family practice integrates the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences in order to treat all ages, genders, each organ system and every disease entity.
