Family Medicine - Piedmont Plaza I Modules
The Module (A, B, C or D) – where your provider, physician, or physician assistant sees you – is his/her office in Family Medicine – Piedmont Plaza I. Each module has its own doctors, nurses and receptionists.
Continuity of care means regular care from health professionals who know you and your family’s medical history. Continuity is very important to your health and to your care providers. We always try to arrange for you and your family to be seen by your personal physician(s). If that is not possible, we will try to have another physician in your regular module care for you. We hope that you and the staff in the module will get to know each other, so that we will be even better able to serve you.
Individual providers are not available every day for patient appointments because of their teaching and research responsibilities. If you have an illness or injury that cannot wait until your provider is available, arrangements will be made for you to be seen by another physician at the Family Medicine Center.
Some of our providers are Family Medicine residents and Physicians Assistants who have faculty members immediately available on-site to supervise your care. In keeping with the educational mission of our institution, occasionally a medical student may see you before your physician comes in the room.
During regular business hours, our operators will assist you in getting an appropriate appointment or speaking with our Triage Nurse regarding urgent care or a minor emergency.
There is always a doctor – our “pool doctor” – available to see patients with more urgent problems when appointments are not available on the regular schedule.
On Saturday mornings, you may be asked to come into our emergency clinic where doctors and staff are available to provide care.
