We’re a small family practice located between Medford and Grants Pass in the town of Rogue River. Our clinic is recognized by the State as a Patient Centered Primary Care Home. And as a family practice, we’re truly at the center of it all – the first stop for illnesses, chronic conditions, and injuries.
In an area where people care and look out for one another, Rogue River Family Practice Clinic is another helping hand. This unique philosophy and practice was founded in 1980, after two young doctors, Dr. Ed Glovinsky and Dr. David Frank, started driving south from Portland on I-5, looking for the ideal place to open a practice. They were looking for the best location to reside, raise families and enjoy their working lives. Near the end of their journey they discovered the town of Rogue River. And the rest, as they say, is history.

In a rural setting, a family practice like ours takes on greater importance than in a city. That’s why Rogue River Family Practice Clinic is as much a citizen as it is a business. In our nearly forty years, we’ve worked with generations of families – doing everything from caring for our newborns to comforting our terminally ill. While our practice must, out of necessity, be general in nature, anyone visiting this site should know:
• We have osteopaths on staff for a more holistic, hands-on approach to medicine.
• We are a complete family practice with general physicians.
• Our in-house X-ray and DexaScan equipment provides immediate results.
• We do lab draws on-site so you don’t need to go to another facility.
• Endoscopy and colonoscopies are performed offsite.
