About Us



Family Medicine Clinic is committed to providing patients with convenient access to high-quality care. We believe that providing high-quality care is not only about the medical advice that we dispense, but more importantly about the relationships we have with our patients. We continue to strive to be a leader in innovative medical practices and are one of the first clinics in the area to offer online health services to our patients.


 The Family Medicine Clinic was started in 1976 to provide care for the residents of the Hot Springs area. Thanks to our supportive patients, we have been able to grow our practice to  6 providers who serve over 30,000 patients.
