Center for Family Medicine

At the St. Elizabeth Center for Family Medicine, we know that great health is a team effort. That’s why we form a partnership with you and your family that focuses exclusively on your unique healthcare needs.

Partnering With You For Better Health

The physician staff of our full-service Edgewood Center for Family Medicine is a panel of faculty members and 30 resident physicians, who are undergoing three years of intensive study in family medicine. So, you will receive state-of-the-art medical care under the direction of our full-time, board-certified faculty.

Our Services

Although we offer a broad scope of services at Center for Family Medicine, it’s important for you to know that all your care is managed by your personally selected physician. And, care is accessible. If you have an urgent problem, we’ll see you the day that you call.

Major services we provide:

  • Obstetrics
  • Pediatrics
  • Adolescent medicine
  • Adult & geriatric medicine
  • Behavioral health counseling
  • Holistic medicine
  • On-site limited lab testing
  • EKGs
  • Spirometry
  • Colposcopy
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy
  • Nasopharyngoscopy
  • Acupuncture
  • Skin lesion removal

Testing & Results

We believe lab tests should be performed only when necessary for a diagnosis, to prevent illness, or to guide treatment. You can always expect your doctor to discuss with you any testing needed so that you can participate in the testing decision.

You can expect your test results within 7 to 10 days after testing completion. If we need to talk with you sooner, we’ll call you. If your results are not received within 7 to 10 days, we want you to call us. To assure that we can easily contact you, please remember to keep your phone number, address and insurance information updated at our front desk.

Medication Refills

We want you to have the medications you need when you need them. So, please remember to bring all your current medication bottles to every visit to help that happen.

To get regular refills, call your pharmacy with any requests, and they will contact us. But, be sure to allow at least 24 hours for our office to approve the refill. However, please know that some medications will not be refilled without an office appointment, and that we will not prescribe or refill controlled substances after office hours

Billing Information

For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. We’ll also be happy to submit your insurance forms if you’ve provided accurate and current information. Co-payments are due at the time of your office visit.

Insurance providers may not pay or fully cover certain services, you will be responsible for any additional charges. However, if special financial circumstances arise, don’t hesitate to discuss the situation with our billing office at (859) 301-3810 so that we can arrange a payment plan.
