Family Medicine is a modern concept of medicine which stresses understanding of each patient and comprehensive medical care for the entire family, regardless of age or sex. Unlike previous concepts of general practice, the family physician is not only trained to deal with acute illness, but is uniquely qualified to provide health maintenance to prevent disease.
Dwight I. Michael, M.D., Adam I. Wasserman, M.D., Douglas E. Eyer, M.D., and William J. Adair, M.D. are board certified family physicians. Each doctor maintains board certification by participating in continuing medical education courses each year as well as by completion of a comprehensive examination given by the American Board of Family Practice every 7 years.
We also have Jennifer E. Roth, PA-C, a physician assistant and Kristi L. Allen, CRNP, a nurse practitioner, on our staff for routine patient care and they both treat a wide variety of acute illnesses and problems. Both Jennifer and Kristi participate in yearly continuing medical education. Jennifer completes a board certification exam administered by the National Commission on Certification for Physician Assistants every 6 years. Kristi completes a board certification exam administered by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners every 5 years.
