Family medicine focuses on meeting the routine health needs of people of all ages. It not only relies on scientifically-based diagnostic and treatment tools but also acknowledges the role family traditions and routines have in shaping each family member’s health and wellness.
When you rely on a family medicine health practice, you ensure that every member of your family receives the same outstanding care. You also reap the benefits of a practitioner who understands your role within your family.
The ability to book all of your family members’ medical appointments at the same office saves you time and effort. You can even set up your visits so that more than one family member is seen on the same day, reducing trips to the office.
Family medicine encompasses all of the routine health needs you face as you move through the phases of life. Preventive health is always a central focus. By working to reduce your risk of disease, you can stave off the discomfort, expense, and risks associated with serious medical conditions.
When issues arise, acute care (sick visits) focuses on determining the cause of your symptoms and getting you on a fast path toward relief. This is especially comforting to parents who want to see their sick or injured child feel better as quickly as possible.
Some of the areas of focus within family medicine include:
For those with one or more forms of chronic disease, chronic care management offers a way to improve their quality of life. The focus is also on reducing the risk of adverse health outcomes associated with your specific form of chronic disease.
From time to time, you may need to work with a medical specialist. Examples include orthopedic surgery, obstetrics, and cancer treatment. When these types of needs arise, your primary care provider helps you find the right specialist.
While you are receiving specialized care, your practitioner remains in contact with your extended care team to ensure continuity of care and an accurate personal medical record.
