Family Medicine in Central Minnesota

Family medicine providers offer comprehensive care for the whole family, from babies to grandparents and everyone in between. Astera Health’s family medicine team provides family-centered care to Central Minnesota residents. 

Family Medicine

There are many reasons to partner with a family medicine provider at Astera at any age or stage. A few benefits include: 

  • Efficient access. Instead of seeking emergency care for injury or illness, you turn to your family provider for primary care. This saves time and money.  
  • One provider for the whole family. Scheduling checkups with multiple providers can be difficult. Family medicine providers can see and get to know your whole family. 
  • Personalized care. Your family medicine provider offers ongoing education and guidance tailored to your needs. That level of knowledge helps them recommend treatments that are specific to you. Family medicine providers learn your medical history, lifestyle, and health goals. With their assistance, you can take charge of your health in a way that aligns with your preferences and values.  

Services available through family medicine

Family medicine specialists provide patient care focused on each patient’s physical, mental, and emotional health. Some of the services Astera family providers offer include:

  • Medicare wellness visits 
  • Minor wound care 

In the event you need additional services, your family medicine provider can refer you to a specialist. Our providers work closely with our specialists and stay updated on your progress, so they can continue your care. By using an Astera family medicine provider, you have seamless access to the specialty services available across our system, such as: 

  • Imaging, such as X-ray, CT, 3D mammography, and more
