2367391_mDo you have questions about the procedures, treatments or services that we offer?

Below is a list of some frequently asked questions, but please feel free to call our office, or email us at info@lgfmedicine.com. We want to answer your questions.

For whom do you provide care?

We care for individuals from newborns to our most senior citizens. In other words, children of all ages.

How about my medical records?

You can have your medical records sent to us before your first visit. All that your current physician should require is a signed request/consent from you (“Please transfer my medical records to…”) and our name and address. You can request a transfer of your records either at our office or through your current physician’s office.

Why should I have a family physician?

Studies show that treatment by Family Physicians results in a quality of care equal to sub-specialty care, high patient satisfaction and more effective use of hospitals, testing, procedures, and technology.

What do family physicians do?

  • Family Physicians care for people of both genders and all ages. Family Physicians diagnose and treat 90% of all Patient problems.
  • Family Physicians work closely with Patient Lounges and other sub-specialties to coordinate care for special and/or complicated problems.
  • Family Physicians treat conditions of all organ systems rather than limiting their practice to a specific organ system.
  • Family Physicians treat the whole Patient, taking into account all medical, social, and mental health concerns of the individual.
  • Family Physicians practice disease prevention and health maintenance in addition to treating illness.

How far in advance should I call to make an appointment?

Our trained office staff of secretaries and medical assistants schedule patients approximately two weeks in advance. If there is a special need, make sure to alert our patient service department. We will make every effort to accommodate your request.

Is prenatal care important?

Yes! You can help make sure that you and your baby will be healthy by following some simple guidelines and checking in regularly with your doctor.
