About Our Company

Family Practice of Suntree and Viera is a very personal private medical practice serving patients in The Suntree and Viera area since 2001. The address of Melbourne, Florida is due to the practice vicinity to the Indian River. Recent changes in legislation have made both giving and receiving health care a troublesome process. We simplify the hassle of the process by providing timely, compassionate, and personalized service to all of our patients in one location with all of our services available under one roof. All of our services are completed in-house, which means you speak to the same dedicated receptionist, nurses, doctor, and PA every time you visit us. All referrals, laboratories, and billing are also generated at the same location.
