Specializing in You and Your Family
Rather than focusing only on a particular organ or disease, family medicine — also known as primary care — providers are trained to consider your health from a holistic viewpoint.
Extensive education prepares family medicine practitioners to care for patients of all ages and to treat many different ailments. Ideally, they care for you — and often for members of your family — over time. That gives them a better understanding of your health and the many factors that can impact it. If you need the care of a specialist, they can provide a referral, coordinate your care and help you navigate the healthcare system.
