COVID-19 Update

During this coronavirus pandemic, your doctors and staff at Family Practice Associates are still available for your health care needs.

Thanks to advanced technology of our electronic medical record system, we can now offer Televisits, which are audio/video visits that you make from your home.

These are similar to "FaceTime", but in a secure, encrypted format.

Don’t feel concerned about your ability to have medical needs addressed in our current time of limited in-person interaction.

Call our office at (830) 896-4711 to schedule an appointment for both chronic and acute conditions. Our office staff will assist you to determine if a Televisit will be right for you
