About Us

Located at Mercyhealth Alpine in Loves Park, IL, the Family Medicine Residency Clinic offers patients complete family medical care from physicians who bring a wide variety of experience to their practice. Resident physicians provide a full array of health care services to the community. As family medicine physicians, they care for people at every stage of life—from infants to the elderly. After graduating from medical school, resident physicians continue to take part in a three-year residency program in their chosen specialty.
