Family Medicine: With You Every Step of the Way
If everyone is on a lifelong healthcare journey, then primary care physicians are the navigators of that journey.
Dr. Amanda Andrade, DO, is one of those navigators. Specializing in family medicine, she has the distinct privilege of seeing patients of all ages.
“I love that I get to work with everyone in the family – from newborns to grandparents,” she said. “My role is making sure we are doing all we can to preserve the patients’ wellness and health. I keep track of my patients’ general health issues, their chronic issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure, and I also see patients for acute visits.”
Mercy health system has four Family Medicine sites located throughout Joplin.
Primary care physicians can offer a wide variety of services to their patients. In addition to regular check-ups and preventive care, many primary care physicians offer services like well-woman exams and small dermatological procedures. Having a primary care physician can prevent trips to a specialist or the emergency room.
Dr. Andrade said the primary care available through Mercy health system is second to none.
“Mercy’s value on human integrity is at the core of what makes it a really great healthcare system,” she said. “I have been able to see the value placed on the individual patient, and I think that all Mercy physicians reflect that in their personal values and the way they practice.”
All Mercy Clinic Family Medicine locations offer convenient online scheduling for new and established patients.
