Our Services

Family practice is the medical specialty concerned with comprehensive health care for the individual and the entire family. It is the specialty of breadth that integrates the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences. The scope of family practice is not limited by the patient's age or sex, condition or disease.

Family practice doctors at BMC take care of managing all your health care needs, whether you are well or ill. With an emphasis on long-term continuing care and disease prevention, we are here to serve you and your entire family; from infants, toddlers, school-age children, teens, young adults, pregnant women, adults and seniors. In short, we care for your whole family, one person at a time.

We practice in nine locations throughout the city for added convenience:
