All of the residents are physicians who graduated from accredited medical schools. The residents are supervised by faculty physicians who are responsible for teaching and assisting with patient care.
The doctors function as a group. Each physician sees patients in the office on a rotating basis. The center makes every effort to schedule patients when their doctor is in. However, one of the doctors is always available to see patients for emergencies. If a patients needs to be hospitalized, a team of doctors, along with any required specialists, will provide the care.
One of the doctors is available every day, 24 hours a day to handle urgent medical problems. Patients should call first for instruction unless it is a true emergency, such as heavy or excessive bleeding, chest pain, symptoms of a heart attack, unconsciousness, broken bones and similar situations.
