The Family Focus Medical Clinics were started in 2001. At that time, the clinic founder, Dr. Mark Fletcher, was working as an emergency physician. In this role, he repeatedly saw patients in the emergency department who were there for minor medical complaints that did not require the services of an emergency department, however, these patients often did not have an alternative to obtaining their minor medical care. Many did not have family physicians, and others were not able to get in to see their family physician.
