What is family medicine?
The physicians in a family medicine practice are specially trained in providing primary healthcare to all members of a family over age two, with a focus on the family as a unit.
Why should you choose a family medicine physician?
A family medicine physician builds a healthcare relationship with each individual in the family, and also monitors the health and well-being of the entire family unit.
By knowing the family's healthcare needs and goals, a family medicine physician is able to recommend prevention and wellness programs appropriate for the whole family. Family medicine physicians help a family work together to achieve their health and wellness goals.
Family medicine practices are convenient for today's busy families, because all family members can see the doctor at the same place. And unlike pediatricians, family medicine physicians can care for children from age two all the way through adolescence and adulthood, allowing children to build a long-term relationship with a physician without having to switch.
