Welcome to San Antonio Family Physicians
At San Antonio Family Physicians, communication and customer service are the cornerstones of our approach. You deserve a doctor who really pays attention to your concerns; one who communicates with you to provide the best individualized medical care possible. We are dedicated to providing our patients with the best experience possible. We truly listen to each patient and address their individual needs. Our goal is to take care of all of our patients primary care needs.
Dr. Eric Bernstein began San Antonio Family Physicians with the “We Listen” philosophy because he realizes that by getting to know his patients, and taking the time to listen to their concerns, medical issues can be prevented and treated with better results. Our focus is on treating the cause of the problem, not the symptom.
We provide a personal approach, treating patients as we would expect our family members to be treated. At San Antonio Family Physicians we firmly believe in preventive medicine when dealing with patients. Many common medical problems people face can either be prevented or identified very early in the disease process, allowing physicians to effectively treat the patient.
San Antonio Family Physicians has incorporated the latest practices and technological advancements to better serve our patients. Not only are we primarily paperless, we have also incorporated a cutting-edge Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system. This state-of-the-art medical office technology allows for web-based patient contact. Through our secure Patient Portal, patients can view lab results, make appointments and payments, ask questions directly of their provider, and request prescription refills. Our EMR system ensures timely follow-up and accurate monitoring of every patient’s medications and testing. At San Antonio Family Physicians, you can expect that we are using the latest, most effective technology, as we are always looking for new ways to improve each patient’s experience.
Our patient-centered approach along with our integration of technology puts San Antonio Family Physicians on the forefront of a national Family Medicine movement toward “patient-centered medical homes. Our goal is to provide primary care that is accessible, coordinated and most effective for both patient and physician.
At San Antonio Family Physicians we believe that listening to our patients is critical to building a strong relationship. By getting to know our patients, we are also able to focus on preventing health issues before they start. Dr. Bernstein and his staff also believe that an all-inclusive medical home is the key to successful patient care. Our patient-centered approach is what sets us apart from other primary care providers. We put the patient first, treating each with respect and dignity so they will leave feeling like a member of our family. SAFP delivers comprehensive and easily accessible patient care. We will take the time necessary to solve our patient’s problems.
