You don’t often think about your family doctor until you get sick. The team at Mercy Clinic Family Medicine at Olive-Mason in St. Louis, MO wants to change that. Being well between visits is just as important. So we focus on education and answering your health care questions and concerns, enabling you to take an active part in your health care. And our team is also linked to numerous medical specialists and a full range of diagnostic laboratory and imaging services when you need them.
Family medicine is a specialty which provides continuing, comprehensive health care for an individual and/or a family. At the center of this is the patient-physician relationship, with the patient viewed in the context of his family. Family medicine physicians are trained to take care of everyone in the family and most medical problems. If a referral is needed, a family medicine physician refers the patient to other specialists, but remains the coordinator of the patient's health care. Our family medicine physicians provide prenatal care, care for newborns, care for children and adolescents, as well as adult members of the family. They also provide geriatric and aging care for patients as they grow older.
Mercy family doctors are connected by our advanced electronic health record system, so your most up-to-date medical information is instantly available to the caregivers at each point of medical care. In addition, you can take advantage of MyMercy, an online service to view test results, make appointments, and send secure messages to your doctor and more –anytime and anywhere. In fact, you can also manage your children's care through MyMercy Family.
