A lot can happen in a year. It’s true that some years are busier and more eventful than others and 2019 was certainly plenty busy here at Family Practice Center. Busy is good. Busy means our practice was able to grow and we were able to provide our unique standard of medical care to even more patients than ever before. To help put things in perspective before the calendar officially flips to 2020, we wanted to chronicle some of the more notable moments of the year here at Family Practice Center.

2019 was a year of arrivals and departures when it comes to our medical staff. We were sad to say goodbye to our longtime PA, Greg Kibler. Greg was a core member of our team here at Family Practice Center for 40 years and his hard work, dedication, and bond with our patients and their families will be missed. However, we were also thrilled to add some truly incredible people to our medical team. Haley Keith, already feel like they’ve been a part of our family for years.

One of our favorite initiatives of the year was launching our Spotlight Patient Testimonial blog series. Over the years, we have found that hearing from other patients, specifically, those who experience similar health issues can be an excellent motivational tool to get people to seek help for certain untreated medical conditions or illnesses. Our Spotlight Testimonial blogs let real Family Practice Center patients tell their own stories and explain how seeking our medical assistance has helped benefit their lives. The results have been fantastic so far!

We’re always looking for ways to help make things easier and more convenient for our patients. This year, we did just that beginning to offer telemedicine appointments with eVisit™. This service allows our patients to consult with Dr. Tyler Wheeler via a smartphone app from the comfort of their own homes. Telemedicine appointments can be ideal for asking pertinent medical questions, supplementing in-office appointments, or even just having a prescription refilled.

With 2019 just about gone, it’s hard not to get excited about all the amazing things 2020 might have in store. We strongly recommend beginning the year with an annual check-up appointment to help start 2020 with a clean bill of health.
