Our goal is to make you feel valued because you truly are. We take the time to deeply understand your needs, goals, and preferences, ensuring personalized care and attention.

Sawtooth Family Medicine

Your unique needs and preferences are prioritized rather than treating you solely as a diagnosis with a standardized approach. Through collaborative efforts, we work closely with our patients to find the most suitable solutions that align with their lives.

We provide comprehensive family care in one convenient location, saving you the hassle of visiting multiple clinics. Our patients value the continuity of care we offer within their family. Collaborating closely with specialists, we ensure a team-centered, multidisciplinary approach to your healthcare needs. While many can be treated by a single provider, we also coordinate specialized care for chronic illnesses, ensuring all your medical needs are met efficiently and effectively.

Family Medicine encompasses a broad spectrum including:

  • Regular checkups for children and adults
  • Routine physical exams for work or school
  • Preventive/Wellness care
  • Acute care/sick visits for all ages
  • Newborn care
  • Immunizations
  • Management of chronic medical conditions
  • Weight management/lifestyle counseling
  • Minor procedures
