UnityPoint Clinic Family Medicine

Family Medicine

Family medicine covers the treatment of a wide variety of symptoms and diseases in individuals ranging from pediatrics to geriatrics. The foundation of family medicine is an ongoing, personal relationship between the individual and their health care provider. By working together as a team and involving the patient in the decision making, providers create a plan based on your goals and then coordinate the care to achieve those goals - so you can be your healthiest.

Family Medicine Providers

Unlike other specialists, family doctors are uniquely trained to treat individuals as a whole person, regardless of age or sex. In addition to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic illnesses, your family doctor provides routine health screenings and discusses lifestyle changes to prevent illnesses before they develop.

Benefits of UnityPoint Clinic Family Medicine

The benefits of having a primary care doctor are endless. A family doctor knows the patient/family history and has access to the personal health care records. That means they can better coordinate the patient's care, no matter where that may be, between the doctor's office, the hospital or care at home.
