Island Family Physicians has a long history in the Anacortes community. We take pride in the personal, long-term relationships we develop with our patients. We became part of Bellingham-based Family Care Network in 2015, an integration that enhances the healthcare experience for our patients by providing state-of-the-art support for our physicians while ensuring that we can continue to provide local, independent care. The integration also helps us control costs through centralized administration and billing, use of an electronic medical records system, and other resources.
One of the benefits of being an IFP patient is that we see our patients at Island Hospital. While the nationwide trend is toward using hospitalists for in-hospital care, we believe the family part of family medicine means keeping in touch with our patients when they are hospitalized.
NEW IN 2015: Island Family Physicians patients now have a lab option located within IFP. Through a partnership wtih PacLab, IFP patients can utilize this convenient, easy-to-access draw station for the majortiy of lab tests. The lab is open 7:30am-4:30pm, Monday-Friday (closed 12:30-1:30pm for lunch).
