Riverside Team

All of our patients have a family doctor, otherwise known as a family physician, at the clinic.  Our family physicians work as a team with other health-care providers to give patients the best possible care.  Family physicians provide clinical leadership to the health-care team and oversee all care, including direct supervision when residents are seeing patients.

Here’s what our family physicians can do for you:

  • Assess and diagnose your health concerns
  • Order tests and prescribe medication when needed
  • Provide treatment and manage your care
  • Teach you about your health conditions and how to take care of yourself
  • Refer you to specialist physicians and other health-care providers when needed

We also have Physicians Assistants!

In our clinic, we also have a Physician Assistant (PA) who you may see during your appointment. A Physician’s Assistant is an academically prepared and highly skilled health-care professional who can provide a broad range of medical services to you. PAs are physician extenders and not independent practitioners. The PA’s scope of practice is determined on an individual basis and formally outlined in a practice contract or agreement between the supervising physician(s), the PA and the facility where the PA will work. Activities may include conducting patient interviews, histories and physical examinations; performing selected diagnostic and therapeutic interventions or procedures; and counseling patients on preventive health care.
