Family medicine offers many benefits and emphasizes overall well being, including physical, mental, and emotional health. Additionally, family medicine provides services for patients of any age so every member of your family can access the care they need. At Rocky Creek Family Medicine in Missouri City, TX, our experienced physicians, Dr. Deirdre McMullen, Dr. Tiyashi Choudhury, and Dr. Hillary Spears, can help your family stay healthy. Although we have reduced hours due to COVID-19, we are still open from 8am to 12pm weekdays.

Family Medicine Services

We provide a wide range of medical and healthcare services for patients of all ages at our family medicine practice in Missouri City, TX. Whether your children are due for a routine wellness exam or the entire family needs flu shots, we can meet your needs. Some of the services we offer include:

  • Treatment of the flu, colds, and strep throat
  • Wellness exams and checkups
  • Sports and annual physicals
  • Women’s health screenings
  • Pediatric care
  • Immunizations

Another component of family medicine is preventative care, which focuses on helping you maintain optimal health and preventing illness or disease. In addition to preventative care services, family medicine also includes managing the symptoms of chronic or existing conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes.

Benefits of Family Medicine

Family medicine delivers several benefits. One primary benefit is the convenience of being able to receive essential medical care for every member of your family at one location. Family medicine provides a full range of medical services for patients of any age. The ability to schedule appointments for multiple family members at the same medical office can also save time and travel. Plus, everyone’s medical records will be available in one location.

An additional benefit of family medicine is that children and teens can continue receiving medical care at the same practice and with the same doctors even as they outgrow pediatric care. This can be a huge advantage for your kids since they can continue being treated by doctors they are comfortable with and who know their medical history.

Family medicine is an excellent choice for meeting the healthcare needs of everyone in your household. To schedule appointments for anyone in your family with Dr. McMullen, Dr. Choudhury, or Dr. Spears during our reduced hours, please call Rocky Creek Family Medicine in Missouri City, TX, at (281) 206-0068.
