immediate health care need after hours?  Call Us First!
Are you a current patient at Family Practice Associates?  Do you need immediate care after-hours?  If you see one of our providers, and have a non-life threatening health care issue that needs immediate attention and just can't want until office hours, CALL US FIRST!  We can direct you to the best course of action, and help keep you out of the emergency room when it is not necessary, saving you time and money!  NOTE:  If you or a loved one may be having a medical emergency, such as a heart attack, stroke, or serious injury, you should call 911 or go to the Emergency Room right away.


During clinic hours, we offer care without an appointment when you need to see a practitioner immediately.  Walk-in care is perfect for sprains, strains, and minor breaks; small cuts and bleeding that may require stitches; fevers, flu and colds; asthma attacks; infections; vomiting, diarrhea, and dehydration; severe sore throats and coughs; rashes and allergic reactions; headaches and earaches; x-rays and bloodwork; other non-life threatening illnesses and injuries that just can't wait for an appointment.  Call ahead or just come in at your convenience!

 documents online!

Would you like to save time?  You can now print out important documents right from the website and complete them before coming to the clinic!  Click here for a Medical Records Release; or, here to print out your demographics and HIPAA forms! 


We offer our patients online access to their medical records!  Available on the computer, through your tablet, or on your phone, the patient portal is easy-to-use, and available 24 hours a day. Send messages to your practitioner, review your clinical summary, access lab results, pay your bill, track vital signs, and get a list of your medications and immunizations anytime.  Best of all, parents can tie all of their family portals together for access under a single username and password.  Call us today to set up your portal!


Walk-in immediate care available

While we prefer you first make an appointment, Family Practice Associates understands there are times when you and your family members are sick or injured and need care right away. During those time, you are welcome to walk right in and see us during normal office hours!

Monday through Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Saturday: 8:30 am - noon

(For after-hour emergencies, dial 911. For urgent medical questions, call 308-865-2767).
