Family Medicine

The Wellness Center established the Family Medicine Department for the provision of family-centered, Primary Health Care services with a focus on preventive medicine for healthy lifestyles and better quality of life.

In July 2003, AACA partnered with Dr. Vicken Poochikian, a specialist in internal medicine from the Washington, DC metro area, to begin providing general family medical services for preventive health care at the Gavar Satellite Clinic. In June 2004, the Wellness Center began to offer basic Family Medicine at the Yerevan Center as well, with additional medical training provided by Drs. John Poochigian and Christina Avakoff of San Francisco.

Services include annual check-ups, diagnosis and treatment of common illnesses, as well as public education of healthy lifestyles through distribution of informative literature/brochures.
