Services

The following sections will help you to decide if Orangeburg Medical Group provides the services you and your family needs.


  • Family Practice Medicine

    Family medicine is a specialty based on the premise that high-quality, cost-effective care is dependent on an ongoing partnership that views the patient as a whole person in the context of his or her family and community.


    The American Academy of Family Physicians defines family medicine as, "... The medical specialty that provides continuing and comprehensive health care for the individual and the family. It is the specialty in breadth that integrates the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences ... (encompassing) all ages, both sexes, each organ system and every disease entity."


     

  • General Surgery

     

    General surgery remains the backbone of the surgical community.  General surgeons are well trained and versed in multiple disciplines, including many aspects of the surgical subspecialties.  General surgery incorporates cancer surgery, breast surgery, endocrine surgery (thyroid, adrenal), surgery of the gastrointestinal tract (gallbladder, gastroesophogeal reflux (GERD), appendix, etc) hernia surgery, and trauma surgery.  As a matter of fact, until approximately 20 years ago, there were not subspecialties, General surgeons performed all surgeries.
