Treating Patients Comprehensively

Many Western medical practitioners view and treat their patients like machines: they simply fix of replace broken parts to make sure the machine is in tip-top condition. However, the Treasure Valley Family Medicine does not treat its patients like machines. In fact, it offers comprehensive personal health care that takes into consideration the whole person. The independent, military veteran owned business believes in prioritizing personal relationship and also provides Boise family medicine services.

What Makes Treasure Valley Family Medicine Clinic Unique

All the staff at the Treasure Valley Family Medicine believes that in order to offer warm, comprehensive service, it is imperative that patients are not crammed into hurried appointments. This is ensured by having a small patient membership to guarantee that every patient would be able to be accommodated. What’s more, the Treasure Valley Family Medicine is flexible when it comes to patients’ preferred mode of communication. While face-to-face meetings are often the best way to get to the bottom of any issue, if an issue could be solved by a phone call or an email, this would also be pursued. Lab draws would be accomplished at the clinic (thus saving precious time and money for the patients), then sent to an independent, certified lab group. This would also ensure timely results that would be much cheaper than going to a hospital-based laboratory. The clinic also has connections with independent imaging companies to allow cheaper imaging studies.
