Family Medicine

Family medicine encompasses all aspects of wellness and illness. The large umbrella of family medicine includes wellness/annual exams, sick visits to deal with short-term illnesses, mental health, and long-term chronic disease plans. As a primary care physician, my role is to help guide discussions about all healthcare-related decisions for all ages and stages. Family medicine includes a lot of education about your health and questions are very welcome. Your visit with us is the starting point through a discussion of concerns. We decide as a team whether you need a specialist, surgery, or therapy, and how we manage your health at a primary level.

Wellness/annual exams are the keystones of family medicine. It is an opportunity to talk about healthy habits, discuss preventative services like cancer screenings, and answer your questions related to wellness. It is not for the laundry list of complaints because those often need time of their own to be sure that your complaints and concerns are heard in detail.


Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) is the therapeutic application of manual techniques by an osteopathic physician to address changes in body structure to improve physiologic function. Applying OMT to joints, muscles, and other tissues in the body allows the body to achieve a state of health more quickly and easily. That means Dr. Andersonning uses her hands to improve the body's function and make you feel better. Although at times some more aggressive techniques may be necessary, the doctor generally uses gentle painless techniques that allow the body to achieve and maintain a better state of health and function.

OMT can have a positive impact on many health issues including sports injuries, migraines, asthma, arthritis, sinus infections, and so much more.


Telemedicine services are available for visits that do not require a hands-on exam or vital signs that need to be taken in the office. There are many occasions when a good assessment can be made through real-time video/audio exchange. We are happy to offer this service however some visits must be done in person. Using the portal is essential for this service to work as that is how you will check in and get the link to the virtual waiting room. Just as if you were in the office, you will be seen in the order you are scheduled.

Some insurances do not pay for telemedicine so it is your responsibility to know if you have coverage for this service. If your insurance does not cover the service, you will be responsible for the cost of the visit.
