Your Healthcare Team

SIU Family Physicians clinic is staffed by qualified doctors (MD's & PA-C's) who have chosen their specialty certification in Family Medicine.

You and your family will be assigned to one physician. This may be a resident physician or a faculty physician. A resident physician is a medical school graduate who is a licensed physician in the State of Illinois and is seeking advanced training in Family Medicine. A faculty physician is a specialist in Family Medicine.

You will be seen by your assigned family physician at all possible times. Alternatively, you may be seen by another team physician who shares calls with your doctor. However, you may be assured that we will make every effort to provide you care with a physician you know.
