Family Medicine Services

Island Family Medicine is a full-service family health care center. We utilize an electronic medical records system to increase the quality and timeliness of your care. Our state of the art equipment allows us to perform and analyze X-rays instantaneously in-house, eliminating the need to drive to imaging centers and wait for results. We offer a lab on the premises where we can perform venipuncture and stat lab procedures.

Your First Visit
