Medical Director Dr. Lamont Tyler works with OSF Medical Group in Bloomington, Illinois. As a clinical physician there, Dr. Lamont Tyler tends to urgent care and acute care patients. He is also affiliated with the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).
The AAFP supports physicians in the family medicine specialty so that they can provide a high standard of care. Alongside resources for individual physicians and their practices, the AAFP engages in political advocacy to advance and protect the discipline.
In January, the AAFP signed two documents in support of women’s health services, which may face an uncertain future. It joined leaders from the American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Physicians, and other physician organizations in asking Washington, DC, to protect health care for women in the coming months and years.
These organizations asked Congress to allow women access to evidence-based care and leave political interference out of medical decisions. Their letters also asked Congress to uphold the preventive care provisions, as well as the ban on gender rating, established by the Affordable Care Act.
As Medical Director of OSF St. Joseph Medical Center’s PromptCare, Dr. Lamont Tyler takes pride in the diverse array of services offered to all individuals on a walk-in basis.
