Family Medicine Q&A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is an area of medical practice focused on delivering top quality care to people of all ages. Family medicine practitioners receive training that enables them to care for infants, children, young adults, and adults through middle age and beyond. 

In some ways, family medicine providers are similar to the health practitioners of generations past. It wasn’t long ago that family members relied on the same provider to attend to all of their health needs. 

Today’s family medicine practitioners have the benefit of far more advanced training and tools. They still strive to deliver the same personalized service that was once common in health care. 

What are the benefits of choosing a family medicine practitioner?

Choosing to work with a family medicine practitioner offers convenience as a primary benefit. The ability to schedule health visits for your entire family at the same practice saves a great deal of time as compared to booking appointments all over town. 

Your physician also gets to know you as an individual and understands your place within your unique family. This is especially helpful for families that have a loved one with special needs, or who are caring for an elderly relative who needs more advanced care. 

Another benefit includes consolidated recordkeeping and billing. Simplifying these tasks leaves you more time to spend on the things you love most. 

What kinds of services are available within family medicine?

When you rely on a family medicine provider, you can expect the same services you can receive from an internal medicine specialist. Preventive health care is a primary focus and delivers the screenings and guidance you need at each phase of life.

If you have one or more chronic health conditions, chronic disease management offers the chance to stay on top of your health and make improvements in your quality of life. When an unexpected illness or injury arises, your family health provider is here to deliver acute care, also known as sick visits.
