Family Practice

Family Practice physicians provide primary patient care which includes the identification and treatment of a wide range of medical, pediatric problems and obstetrics including pregnancy and delivery. This course of treatment might involve consultation with another member of the clinic staff, or temporary transfer of full responsibility for care through the immediate episode of illness. Any such sharing of responsibility will be done with your full knowledge and approval. If you are a new patient of Kearney Clinic with no established family doctor, or if your regular family doctor is not available, our staff will help you select a physician. Days out listed are subject to change without notice and do not include days out for vacation or meetings.
