Family Medicine

Count on dedicated family medicine providers at UNC Health Caldwell for convenient, complete medical care for your whole family.

What’s a Family Medicine Provider?

Your family medicine provider, or family physician, is your primary care provider (PCP) at UNC Health Caldwell. Depend on your PCP to provide comprehensive health care, including prevention, diagnosis, and treatments.

Benefits of Having a Family Medicine Provider

Partner with a trained, experienced family medicine provider at UNC Health Caldwell to improve your long-term health. You and your PCP will develop an ongoing, patient-physician relationship focusing on your health. Establishing a sense of trust with your PCP will also help you feel more comfortable talking about health issues and concerns.

Conditions Your PCP Cares

Turn to your family doctor or provider for exceptional care and treatment of a wide range of child and adult conditions, including:

Onsite Services

Get convenient lab and X-ray services at most UNC Health Caldwell family medicine offices.

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment

Discover osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) at UNC Health Caldwell’s Westpointe Medical Practice. Depending on your condition, OMT can complement primary care and may replace medication or surgical treatments.

A doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO) receives advanced training about the musculoskeletal system and how it interconnects with and affects other body systems. DOs move your muscles and joints using OMT techniques, such as:

  • Gentle pressure
  • Resistance
  • Stretching

Be an Active Participant in Your Care

Stay healthy and be an active participant in your care. You should:

  • Schedule regular checkups with your provider
  • Keep your personal medical history up-to-date
  • Work with your provider to make health care decisions
  • Ask questions about your treatments
  • Follow your care plan
  • Tell your provider about other specialists who care for you

Specialty Care Referrals

If your family medicine provider or DO recommends additional care for a health condition, he or she will coordinate or co-manage your care with other UNC Health Caldwell specialists.

Behavioral Health

If you need behavioral health services or medication consultation, your PCP will refer you to community-based services. Hospital treatment of adult behavioral health conditions will be available at UNC Health Caldwell starting in spring 2020.
