Family Medicine — or Family Practice as it is sometimes called — is what most people think of when they think of the traditional family doctor who cares for you throughout your life. That long-term relationship with a provider allows your Family Physician to care for you as a whole person and to provide a consistency of care that makes a world of difference in your ability to get healthy and stay that way.
Family doctors diagnose and treat acute episodes like a sore throat or flu as well as chronic illnesses and conditions like high blood pressure; provide routine checkups and encourage lifestyle changes to help prevent disease. Family doctors also provide care to all ages and both sexes.
