“I love the Family Medicine and the opportunity to follow numerous members of the same family as they move through the various stages of life. I enjoy seeing them for check ups and managing their chronic medical conditions and being there for the unexpected and unwelcome illnesses, acute problems and injuries. First Colonial Family practice recognizes that problems occur quickly and need timely assessment; therefore we are here every day and you don’t even need an appointment, you can just walk in. We try to meet two of the pillars of primary care — continuity and availability.”
