Primary Care Services
At Lorton Station Family Medicine, we provide continuing and comprehensive pediatric and adult healthcare, including most preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic services for a wide array of acute and chronic problems. As family physicians, we are dedicated to treating the whole person. Family medicine’s cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focused on integrated care. Unlike other specialties that are limited to a particular organ, disease, age, or sex, family medicine integrates care and patient information for both genders across the full spectrum of ages within the context of the family and community. In addition, it advocates for the patient in an increasingly complex healthcare system.
With an emphasis on disease prevention and health promotion, family medicine aims to provide personal, comprehensive and continuing care of the individual throughout every stage of life. Lorton Station Family Medicine is especially devoted to making each individual patient’s needs and concerns a priority.
We are a certified Patient-Centered Medical Home by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This innovative program to improve primary care encourages and facilitates partnerships between individual patients and personal physicians and, when appropriate, the patient’s family. FFPC is organized as a physician-led care team that provides for every patient’s healthcare needs and coordinates care across the healthcare system.
