CWFM is the clinic where

The Family Medicine residents and faculty care for their patients. You will be assigned to one of these physicians. Since they all have teaching or learning duties outside the clinic, they have limited clinic times. To provide uninterrupted care for you, we have four teams within the clinic. You and a group of providers are assigned to one of these teams. We make every effort to schedule you with your own doctor, but if he/she is not available, you will be scheduled with a partner of your team. View medical teams


Clinic Hours

CWFM is open Mon through Friday 8:00 am to 7:30 pm.


We provide

The full range of primary care for adults and children including pregnancy and delivery. When you require more specialized care, we will refer you to the proper specialist and coordinate your care.
