to the online home of Lawrence Family Medicine & Obstetrics (LFMO). Here you will learn about our doctors and staff, our approach to family medicine, and the services we can provide for you and your family.

What is family medicine?

Family Medicine is a medical specialty dedicated to the comprehensive care of the whole person and family−regardless of gender or age−from the beginning to the end of life. Family physicians are trained to provide personalized care for at least 85 percent of a person’s medical problems, and to coordinate the specialty care that may be needed for the rest.

The LFMO "24/7" commitment

Our commitment to you is accessibility to medical information and assistance 24 hours a day. We do this by providing a broad range of medical services, seven days a week, delivered with a personal touch while using the latest of medical technologies. Our on-call doctor is available by phone to talk to you at any time, day or night. And, since the best medical care is delivered in person, we maintain extended office hours on weekdays as well as provide office hours for urgent care on Saturdays and Sundays.

Up-to-date, prompt services

LFMO’s state-of-the-art Electronic Health Record provides
a well-organized, always up-to-date (and legible) way to keep track of your and your family’s medical information. This computerized record gives our doctors and staff complete and comprehensive access to your specific information at any time, which in turn provides a quality assurance system that would be impossible using the old system of paper charts and files. Plus, the broad range of lab and imaging services we provide on site gives our doctors and staff fast results from which to make accurate, prompt diagnoses and treatment plans. These on-site services also save you valuable time and worry.

Insurance participation

We participate in many insurance plans, including: Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Kansas, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Kansas City, Cigna, Coventry, United Healthcare, Preferred Health Professionals, Aetna, Freedom, Humana and Medicare. Please call our office to verify that your insurance plan is one in which we participate.
