HEALTHCARE FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY
At Family Practice Associates Sewickley, we are committed to caring for patients in all phases of life, from newborn to elderly. We provide routine health maintenance and preventive care, routine woman care including contraception and PAP smears, treatment for both acute and chronic illnesses, and certain surgical procedures such as cryotherapy for wart removal or incision and drainage of an abscess.

IMMUNIZATIONS
We consider immunizations to be an important part of health maintenance throughout a person’s life. We recommend immunizations based on the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control.

INJECTIONS
We can perform immunizations or other injections (such as allergy shots) at the time of your doctor visit, or you may receive them during our injection hours.  Please see the “Location/Hours” tab.


SPECIALTY CARE AND REFERRALS
If a specialist is needed for participation in your care, we will refer you to trusted colleagues. We endeavor to communicate openly with the specialist(s) in order to provide the best possible care for you. Most insurance plans do not require a formal referral. 

FORMS
We will gladly fill out most forms. Most commonly, we are asked to fill out sports, work, and drivers license physical forms. Please bring these to your appointment if possible. In certain rare circumstances, for example a very lengthy form, a fee may be charged.
