Frequently Asked Questions
Family medicine is a branch of medicine that provides care for multiple generations. As a family medicine specialist, Mrs. Brock can care for you and your loved ones. One of the primary benefits of family medicine is that it can save you time and money on travel. You can schedule visits for you and your children (ages 11+) on the same day in the same location.

Chronic diseases, like diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure), can lead to serious health complications — blood vessel damage, stroke, vision problems, etc. — without proper management.
