Ask Dr. Lawrence Oragwu and his wife, nurse practitioner Milady Mortimer-Oragwu, and they will tell you that the best way to ensure good health is prevention.
Their enthusiasm for serving the families of Humble is clear form the moment you meet them. Dr. Oragwu was a strong voice in leading the HSH community health fair last smmer, where he was delighted to educate residents about the steps they could take to prevent diabetes and lower their cholesterol, as well as making sure local schoolchildren got the immunizations they need.
The Oragwus opened Family Practice Doctors, located in the Medical Office Building next to Humble Surgical Hospital, with the goal of promoting better health in the community. They were happy to talk about their approach to care:
What is the philosophy behind your practice?
Our philosophy is to provide the best possible patient-centered care for our families. We believe that optimal health is a team approach where patient, family and healthcare provider are communicating effectively. Our desire to see a healthy and thriving community drives our care.
What should patients know about Family Practice Doctors?
The care is unsurpassed. Our providers are caring, patient and listen to each patient’s concerns. Our staff is top notch. We pride ourselves in providing a full range of services, as well as continuous inpatient and outpatient care. We are board-certified in Family Medicine. We pride ourselves on having a short waiting period, so that patients spend the majority of their time with our providers and not in the waiting room.
We spend much of our time teaching about illness and ways to help prevent disease.
We safeguard patient information, yet make records accessible to them when needed via our patient portal. We offer an array of services, including adult health care, well-woman, DOT physicals and camp physicals. We offer adult and childhood immunication and TB screening.

What kind of atmosphere should a patient expect?
It sounds cliche, but “when you are here, you are family.” Most importantly, patients can expect a provider who will listen to their concerns and work with them to help address the issues.
What is your next goal?
We want to increase health and prevention awareness through community events and educational seminars.
