Preventive medicine saves lives and improves the quality of life. Conveniently located off of Cary Parkway in Cary, NC, near REX Healthcare of Cary and WakeMed Cary Hospital, Triangle Family Care is a full-service family medical practice treating patients from pediatrics to geriatrics. Dr. Stevens’ core philosophy is grounded in the belief that everyone should have a primary care provider who is the central point of contact for all medical issues. This method of operation ensures that there is at least one medical professional who is involved in all aspects of patient healthcare. Often, medical conditions or symptoms are related or may have a common cause; with a primary care professional reviewing or administering all medical tests and evaluations, it is less likely that conditions will go undiagnosed or untreated.

Triangle Family Care is pro-preventive medicine. This means that, as a patient, you are encouraged to remain active in routine screenings and examinations. Through routine preventive care, Dr. Stevens, Kellie, Kristy and Elise are able to identify and proactively treat possible life-threatening medical conditions.
Regardless of age (and only excepting acute medical emergencies), your initial visits to the office will include collection of family, medical, surgical, and personal history information. Potential areas of concern, based on patient data as well as family history information, are thoroughly discussed. Treatment plans are developed to stave off medical issues or to treat existing issues. Because the Triangle Family Care practice is a whole-body establishment, adjustments to diet and recommendations for specific or general exercises or therapies may be suggested over prescribing medicines.
Subsequent visits to the office include follow ups for any identified issues, general physicals and a comparison of new data to previously collected data, and conversations around any new issues or side effects. The office generally has all records and results from any tests taken at this or other facilities and your healthcare practitioner will review those results with you. If needed, adjustments are made to your recommended course of treatment based on the current information.
Established patients experiencing an acute disorder are encouraged to call the office. If your issue is one that we believe is suitable for an emergency/urgent office visit, we will squeeze you in. If your symptoms sound as though immediate medical treatment is required that we can’t provide in the office, we will recommend that you either contact 911 immediately or go to the nearest emergency room or urgent care center. Ensure that you give any and all other healthcare providers the contact information for Triangle Family Care and request that Dr. Stevens and/or his staff are contacted and copies of results are sent to the office.
We have an onsite phlebotomist provided through Solstas (Quest Diagnostics) to draw blood, so you don’t have to leave our facility and visit another site for standard lab tests. The current phlebotomist is Cookie!
