About Newnan Family Medicine Associates P.C.

Newnan Family Medicine Associates P.C. is a full-service family medicine clinic with both a physician and nurse practitioner as providers.

This practice was recently acquired by Dr. Cecil Bennett. He is diligently working to add services that will be helpful to the community.

What is Family Medicine?

Family physicians possess unique attributes, skills and knowledge which qualify them to provide ongoing, Comprehensive medical care to each member of the family.

Cecil Bennett MD A family physician is a doctor who has received at least three years of specialty training (beyond medical school) in the broad disciplines of primary care. These include
in-depth coverage of adult and pediatric medicine, preventive care and OB care. Because of their training, family physicians are uniquely qualified to serve as Primary Care Providers.

The cornerstone of family medicine is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focused on integrated care. Your family physician is trained to provide optimal medical care by looking at the whole person, rather than focusing on just one organ system. In addition to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic illnesses, your family physician provides routine health screenings and counseling on lifestyle changes in an effort to prevent illnesses before they develop.

As family physicians, we directly provide 80-90% of the medical care required by the patients we serve, but we are also trained to know when specialty care is needed. Every effort is made to communicate clearly with consulting specialists to coordinate care and minimize inconvenience to our patients. Our goal is to provide the right care by the right physician at the right time.

Wellness

The terms “Wellness” has different meanings for different people. For Dr. Bennett wellness means exploring all aspects of life that affect both physical and mental health. Wellness strives to find a balance between physical and mental being. One could be in great shape but because of mental health issues like depression or anxiety, one just never feels well. On the other hand, one could be cheerful and positive about life but be obese with multiple chronic issues.

Cecil Bennett MD
