Each year, millions of people seek medical care and most often, their entry into the health care system is through a visit with their Primary Care Physician (PCP). Primary care providers are specifically prepared for “first contact” and for supporting patients during their journey through the health care delivery system.
Family practitioners and internist/pediatricians (a combination of internal medicine and pediatrics) are trained to care for an entire family regardless of the age or gender of the family members. Primary care includes health promotion and maintenance, disease prevention and management, counseling and patient education, and diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic conditions.
At Family Practice Associates of Lexington our mission is simple: to provide preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic health services with attention to individual need. We are dedicated to giving family-centered care from birth to later years in an affordable, high quality manner.
Family Practice Associates of Lexington, PSC is pleased to announce that it has been re-certified as a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for using evidence-based, patient-centered processes that focus on improving the health and outcomes of its patients.
Beginning in mid-January 2017, we will be implementing Phreesia to help streamline our registration process. Patients will receive an orange Phreesia pad at check-in and will review and update their demographic and clinical information, as well as pay any balances, privately on the pad. Please arrive about 15 minutes early for your appointment as we make this transition to the new Phreesia pads.
Pre-Visit: Patients may also receive an e-mail from us up to 5 days before their appointment with a secure web link to check-in online in advance of their appointment, similar to TSA Pre-Check at the airport. By using the pre-visit process, patients will have all of their paperwork completed and any payments due already made before arriving at the office, making their check-in process much quicker and easier. Your health information is protected and processed through HIPAA secure connections.
Thank you for your patience during this transition.
