This is no ordinary Medical Practice. Suncoast Family Wellness operates as an Urgent Care model, inviting those seeking healthcare services to walk-in for care without appointments. As with most Urgent Care facilities, Suncoast Family Urgent Care and Wellness Center has the capability of treating minor injuries and acute illness. But that’s not all that’s available at this unique practice. In addition, a new approach to the art of medical practice is incorporated. It is one designed to give the patients of all ages a full spectrum of treatment options in which the patient and physician collaborate in new and dynamic ways for the individual optimal health of each patient. Included in their treatment plans will be aspects of Integrative Medicine, Medical Acupuncture, Osteopathic treatments, Herbal, Homeopathic, supplements, nutrition and essential oils, breath work, and mind body spirit medicine.
Appointments may be scheduled for those seeking routine medical treatment, wellness checks, physicals and more extensive consultation. In addition, Dr. Bakus provides home visits for newborns to children 1 yr of age and those who have mobility restrictions.
