Welcome to Family Practice Associates!
The Mission of Family Practice Associates is to serve our patients by providing quality medical care in a respectful, kind, compassionate and cost-effective manner.
At Family Practice Associates, your doctor is part of a Patient Centered Medical Home. This means that our doctors and staff know that building relationships with our patients and working closely with other health care professionals are keys to improving health and treating illness. Our patients are partners in making decisions about the care they receive.

Flu Shot Time!
Family Practice Associates now has flu shots available by appointment or through our walk-in clinic*. We will also be offering a special flu clinic during our normal business hours October 10 - 13. We provide the Quadrivalent vaccine, which covers four strains of the flu.
Why should you and your family be vaccinated against the flu? Each year influenza leads to sickness, hospitalization and, occasionally, even death, especially in older individuals. Annual flu shots are the best way to reduce your chances of getting seasonal flu and spreading it to others. The CDC recommends that all persons over the age of six months should be vaccinated.
*If you will be requesting the Vaccine for Children (VFC) provided by the State, please call us at 308-865-2767 to make an appointment before coming in.
Traveling Internationally? Call us Early!
If you are headed out of the country, you should not only be up-to-date on all U.S. vaccinations, but you may also need other vaccinations due to different health risks in certain areas of the world.
Sometimes a vaccination requires a series of shots that take time to work and truly protect you. Therefore, you should plan ahead and contact our office a minimum of 4-6 weeks before any actual international travel.
To learn more about international travel vaccine requirements, click on our Services page or go to the CDC website. The CDC website includes travel tips and links to health risks, as well as vaccines and medicines you may need.
