About Hanover Family Practice Associates
Providing medical services for children, adolescents, and adults!
Hanover Family Practice Associates is a group practice with five offices to serve you. Our doctors share on-call duties, expenses, and resources to provide you with cost-effective, quality medical care.
We work to promote the health and well-being of our patients and the community through medical service and education. You will have a single family doctor who knows and cares for you. Your own doctor, or his/her physician assistant or nurse practitioner, will see you unless he or she is unavailable. In that event, another doctor will cover and provide care for you or your family member until your doctor is available. At least one of the physicians remains available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our family practice is made up of MD's, DO's, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners. Our physicians have training in six broad areas of medicine (pediatrics, surgery, internal medicine, gynecology, psychiatry and community medicine), and are certified and retested every seven years by the American Board of Family Medicine. Our Physician Assistants are board certified by the National Certification Center for Physician Assistants. Our Nurse Practitioners are board certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
Family doctors provide continuing and comprehensive health care for women and men from birth to old age, in the environment of family and community. We can care for over 90% of medical problems and refer to the appropriate specialist when necessary. We also care for our patients in local nursing homes and occasionally will need to see an ill, bedridden patient at their home.
Even when you require treatment from a specialist, you can be certain that your doctor will continue to be involved in the supervision and coordination of your health care. Your family doctor at HFPA should be the first person that you consult for any medical problem.
