Family Practice Center

Front Royal, VirginiaPhoto of the outside of the building of Front Royal Family Practice

The Family Practice Center is home to our residency program and Front Royal Family Practice (FRFP). FRFP is a well-established, full service practice which has been providing health care for this community for over 20 years: Between our residency and FRFP, we have created an atmosphere of cooperation and teamwork of which the residents are an essential part. During the three years you are a resident in our program, you will be a part of our family and the Family Practice Center will become your professional home.

The Family Practice Center was built in 1999 and is almost 18,000 square feet. The building itself, as well as the staffing, were designed to optimize your learning of ambulatory medicine skills. There are 30 exam rooms, two procedure rooms, a counseling room with a one-way mirror, six resident offices with two desks and two computers in each office, six faculty offices, an administrative office for the residency, a precepting room with a library and two computers, a large conference room, as well as a large business office and waiting room. The building is fully computerized with a state-of-the-art electronic medical record and we can perform procedures that range from skin lesion excision to joint injections, laceration repair, casting and splinting, osteopathic manipulation, vasectomy, video colposcopy, spirometry, and ultrasound.

The patient care area is divided into three large sections with two nursing pods per section, as well as two faculty and two resident offices per section. This enables us to maximize our team approach to health care delivery and facilitates regular resident/faculty interaction. Staffing in the Family Practice Center is such that there is excellent nursing support. All of the nursing personnel and many of the clerical personnel actively participate in your education and are invaluable members of our health care team.
