What Is It?
A family medicine physician is a medical professional whose training focuses on providing health care for the entire family. They are devoted to providing primary care for patients of all ages and genders.
Family physicians are focused on creating caring and lasting relationships with patients and their families. These doctors are often broadly trained in how to provide procedures and services and they offer a range of acute, chronic, and preventative medical care services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventative care, including routine checkups, health risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family physicians also manage chronic illness, often coordinating cared provided by other subspecialists.
The practice of family medicine is quite comprehensive. This is because it is structured to provide services to the entire family system, and this is what delineates family medicine from other specialties that focus on a specific patient population.
