Pennock Patients
Personal care. Close to home. Pennock Family Medicine Centers.

Pennock Family Physicians are dedicated to treating the whole person. Each Pennock Family Medicine location is a patient-centered Medical Home, providing a personal patient-physician relationship focusing on integrated care. Unlike other specialties that are limited to a particular organ, disease, age or sex, family medicine integrates care for patients of both genders across the full spectrum of ages within the context of community and advocates for the patient in an increasingly complex health care system.

Like other medical specialists, family physicians complete a three-year residency program after graduating from medical school. As part of their residency, they participate in integrated inpatient and outpatient learning and receive training in six major medical areas: pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, psychiatry and neurology, surgery and community medicine. They also receive instruction in many other areas including geriatrics, emergency medicine, ophthalmology, radiology, orthopedics, otolaryngology and urology.

Providing patients with a personal medical home, Pennock Family Physicians deliver a range of acute, chronic and preventive medical care services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventive care, including routine check ups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

 

Patient-Centered Medical Home. Building a Healthcare Partnership with You.

Patient-Centered Medical Home or PCMH is an established model for care that has been refined over the past few years, emphasizing more personalized, coordinated, effective and efficient care for patients. Pennock believes that nothing should stand between a patient and his/her good health.


PCMH strengthens this physician-patient relationship with the goal to move from episodic care to care that is more coordinated, strategic and integrated. The physician and the patient look at the patient’s health history and current health; then together, they develop a comprehensive, on-going personal care plan.


This health relationship does not stop with the primary care physician or a certain period of time in your life, but is meant to continue on through all stages of life including preventive services, chronic, and acute care. A patient’s personal needs are attended to through every stage of life. Your care and the accountability for that care are passed from one team mem- ber to the next without any loss of quality or continuity. The desire is a positive health outcome with an enhanced total experience for everyone.
