At the Mid-Valley Community Clinic, it is our mission to look after the health and wellbeing of our whole community. Offering the best care for every member of your family is integral to this mission, so we aim to provide the support, information and medical care you need, when you need it.
What Is Family Practice?
Our physicians are certified in family medicine and are supported by well trained and experienced nurses and health care workers. As a team, we offer advice and diagnosis for a range of conditions that present in individuals of all ages. We can offer treatment options for everything from common childhood illnesses to pregnancy complications. We are also able to support the elderly and treat minor workplace injuries, as well as commonplace accidents that happen in the home.
The medical team at Mid-Valley understands the impact that an illness can have on the whole family. We will be there to help guide you through treatment options, particularly when you are caring for children or elderly relatives that require additional support. Our cohesive approach means that we can diagnose problems quickly, minimizing the stress and worry that often accompany health-related issues.
The Place Of Preventative Medicine
Preventative medicine plays a crucial role within family practice. Prevention is always the desirable course of action. By providing inoculations, particularly in childhood, and lifestyle education, we aim to minimize the amount of time you spend being treated for conditions that could be prevented. While we always welcome members of our community into the clinic, we know that we are doing our job effectively when we don’t see you too often. Preventative care offered at the clinic includes:
- Childhood inoculations and regular boosters
- Dietary advice for both adults and children
- Weight loss and weight maintenance support
- Advice and support for a range of addictions
- Diabetes and asthma clinics
- General check-ups such as blood pressure and cholesterol monitoring
Testing, Diagnosis and Treatment
Not all conditions can be prevented, and when illness or accidents happen, we will be there. Our team has access to a range of resources and state-of-the-art equipment, including a 4D Ultrasound scanner, to support our diagnosis.
Where samples are needed, we will ensure that your results are treated with the utmost discretion, and if we need to refer you on for further testing, we will do our best to do this in the shortest possible time. We know that waiting for results and answers is not easy, particularly when children are involved.
In addition, we will always look at you has a whole person, which includes searching for alternative ways to support your recovery.
To be involved in family practice is an honor for us, so we promise to be guided by only what is best for you, to take your concerns seriously and to provide you with the privacy and discretion you need.
