Family medicine covers the treatment of a wide variety of symptoms and diseases in individuals ranging from pediatrics to geriatrics. There are many aspects of family medicine that benefit individuals of all ages and health backgrounds. Family history, age, diet and lifestyle are several contributing factors to determine when health care is necessary. The patient can be cared for by one specific family doctor who can take care of an individual and their entire family’s needs, from pediatric to adult/geriatric care. The foundation of family medicine is an ongoing, personal relationship between the individual and their doctor. By working together as a team and involving the patient in the decision making, we create a plan based on your goals and then coordinate the care to achieve those goals – so you can be your healthiest.
