Benefits of a Family Medicine Doctor
Family & Community Medicine provides care to help your family thrive, including the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses and injuries, prevention screenings, and health education for everyone — from babies to older adults. Reasons to choose a family medicine provider include:
Family medicine providers treat a variety of patients. They are trained in labor and delivery and prenatal care and can take care of your children from a young age. You can find comfort in building trust with a PCP who cares for multiple generations of your whole family.
A family medicine provider is more likely to understand your family and all the factors that impact medical care. They can create a treatment plan customized to fit your family’s goals, values and needs. Because the family medicine provider is familiar with your family dynamics, he or she is unlikely to recommend a treatment or service that is unrealistic for your schedule, your lifestyle or your finances.
Committed to You
