Berkeley, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/18/2011 -- Wimberley Medical Clinic offers practical health information on its Website that supports the needs of its patients and members of the Wimberley community.

Surveys have shown that U.S. adults frequently search online for health information, but are frustrated by the large volume of information they find from questionable sources. A majority of health consumers state that they would prefer to get that information directly from their own doctor. Unfortunately, a majority of physicians report finding it difficult to provide education during an office visit and most medical practice Websites lack health information.

Wimberley Medical Clinic, a primary care practice in Wimberley, Texas, understands the importance of patient education (http://www.vivacare.com) and has taken measure to improve clinical care and patient satisfaction. It now provides its patients with convenient, online access to educational resources on its own practice Website.

The family physicians and nurse practitioners of Wimberley Medical Clinic (http://www.wimberleymedicalclinic.com/wimberleymedicalclinic.com/Facts,_Forms_%26_Links.html) show their commitment to patient care by making health information available online regarding the medical conditions they treat, the procedures they perform, and medications they prescribe.

The medical professionals of Wimberley Medical Clinic join others who use the “From Your Doctor” service from Vivacare to manage their patient education content.

Wimberley Medical Clinic is here to serve patients of all ages. In addition to treating illnesses and injuries, we offer well-child checks, general physicals, sports physicals, gynecological services (excluding obstetrics), and minor surgical procedures.  We have in-house x-ray facilities and offer lab services ordered by our physicians.
