Prompt access to health care is perhaps the single, most important factor supporting our quality of life. McLaren Oakland is proud of the many Family Practice physicians we have trained over the past 40 years. These men and women provide personal medical care based on time-tested osteopathic principles of wellness and preventive medicine. These concepts have been adopted by the entire medical community (both D.O.'s and M.D.'s) as the most responsible and effective approach to family health care.
Residency training sites have been developed for continuity of care. All sites have Medical Center employed physicians (board certified in Family Practice and Internal Medicine, respectively) providing full-time supervision for patient care and training.
