Rather than focusing only on a particular organ or disease, family medicine — also known as primary care — providers are trained to consider your health from a holistic viewpoint.
Extensive education prepares family medicine practitioners to care for patients of all ages and to treat many different ailments. Ideally, they care for you — and often for members of your family — over time. That gives them a better understanding of your health and the many factors that can impact it. If you need the care of a specialist, they can provide a referral, coordinate your care and help you navigate the healthcare system.

In addition to caring for sick patients, primary care providers help to keep people healthy by educating them about things like nutrition, weight loss, exercise and quitting smoking. If you’re looking for personalized general healthcare, or if you’d like a doctor who can care for your whole family, a family medicine provider is a good choice.

Behavioral Health services are available to patients of Olympic Medical Physicians Primary Care through a collaborative care model that involves both a primary care provider and a licensed mental health professional. If you are interested in behavioral health services at OMP, ask your primary care provider. Collaborative Care was developed at the University of Washington and focuses on improved patient outcomes. Collaborative Care allows patients to seek behavioral health services in a more comfortable environment, reduces the need for duplicative appointments and increases patient engagement.
