Family Care Center

We know it’s important to have access to healthcare for every member of your family, close to home. That’s why we see patients of all ages — including babies, children, and teenagers. We also know that’s part of the reason why the Taylorsville community continues to vote us as the #1 doctor’s office in the area. We love our patients, and we’ll always be here for you.

Our scope of service includes treatment of acute illnesses and chronic condition management. Preventive care and education are emphasized by the care team. Diagnostic services are provided within the practice.

Family Care Center is committed to providing patients with convenient access to high-quality care. We believe that providing high-quality care is not only about the medical advice that we dispense, but more importantly about the relationships we have with our patients. We continue to strive to be a leader in innovative medical practices and are one of the first clinics in the area to offer online health services to our patients.
