What is Family Medicine?
Family medicine refers to a specialty of medical practice focused on providing general care for all members of a family. Choosing a family medicine doctor is very important, as most medical visits from issues large to small, are managed through a family medicine practice.
Family medicine doctors receive training in almost every area of medicine. This is done so that they can accurately diagnose and treat a variety of acute illnesses and injuries. Family medicine doctors are also specially trained to help their patients deal with chronic diseases.
Do I need a Family Medicine Physician?
Every person should have a primary care physician. A family physician provides a stable source of medical information at a convenient office location to handle your medical care. As the name implies, an essential part of family medicine is treating the entire family. It’s beneficial to your overall well-being to have a provider who knows and understands your holistic treatment for you and your whole family.
