Established in 1983 by Dr. Richard Michal, Family Medical Center of Rocky Mount is currently owned by Dr. Michal and Dr. Mark Abel who joined the practice in July 1994. Family Medical Center has grown from one provider and one nurse to eleven board certified providers and a support staff of over fifty five. Originally named Rocky Mount Family Medical Center, the name was changed to Family Medical Center of Rocky Mount in 2004 to allow for future expansion. In 2001, Family Medical Center moved from Noel Lane to a new spacious facility at 804 English Road. With this move, new radiology and laboratory departments were opened to better accommodate our patients’ needs. Additionally in 2001, Family Medical Center began its movement toward offering the latest in medical technology with the addition of an electronic medical records system. This trend continued with the purchase of a new iDexa (bone density) machine in 2006 and the purchase of new laboratory equipment in 2007. Also in 2007, Family Medical Center added a website which allows patients to find helpful medical information as well as request appointments and medication refills.

Family Medical Center offers a variety of medical services including complete family care, women’s health, laboratory and radiology services, coagulation clinic and diabetes support groups. With a goal of being known as the medical practice with the most satisfied and loyal patients in the region, Family Medical Center is here to serve you with board certified Christian providers, superior customer service, modern methods of communication including a patient portal and smart phone app, and the latest in medical technology.

Recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, Family Medical Center was designated a Patient Center Medical Home Level Three in 2011 – a designation that currently remains in effect. Level Three is the highest level of recognition given by this independent organization. Family Medical Center uses this review as a way of continuing to look for ways to improve patient service on every level.
