The Mission of 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.

Medication Take back Event


Prescription drugs are the second-most abused category of drugs in America, and over 70% of people who abused them got them from friends or family members.  Do you have unused prescriptions sitting in your medicine cabinet?  On April 28, 2018, from 10:00 - 2:00, you can dispose of your medications at CHI Health Good Samaritan Hospital in the north parking lot "M".  If you can't make it to this event, unwanted medications can be taken back anytime to HyVee, Medicap, ABC Drugs, Valley Pharmacy, Walgreens, or Svanda Healthmart in Ravenna.
