What Is Family Medicine?

Family medicine specialists act as your primary care provider from birth until end of life. They focus on creating close partnerships with their patients and are with them to provide support and care at every stage.

In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, our family medicine doctors provide preventative care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and guidance for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Why It’s Important to See Your Family Medicine Doctor

Seeing your family medicine provider regularly is a good investment for your health. It is recommended that both adults and children visit their doctor to get a yearly checkup, even if you feel perfectly fine.

When you visit your doctor, he or she will recommend exams that may catch problems early.

The benefits of seeing your family medicine doctor regularly include:

  • Discussions around how to stay healthy and prevent disease
  • Catching potential health conditions early on when they are more treatable
  • Providing you with a better understanding of your health history
  • For those with chronic health conditions, your doctor can help you prevent complications
  • Developing a relationship with your doctor will help you both communicate better with each other
  • Being proactive with your health, reducing the amount of Emergency room visits and lowering your care costs in the long run
