Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

A family medicine specialist serves as a primary care provider for people of all ages. Family medicine embodies comprehensive care by diagnosing, treating, and preventing the many medical concerns people face across their lifetimes.

The Family and Internal Medicine Center team offers integrative care that supports each person’s physical and mental well-being. Individuals and families receive compassionate care from a family medicine provider who has experience in pediatric, adolescent, adult, and geriatric health care.

What are the advantages of family medicine?

Your Family and Internal Medicine Center provider seeks to build relationships with and care for family members from multiple generations.

When you or anyone in your family needs medical care, you can skip impersonal urgent care facilities. Instead, you can relax in the care of professionals whom you know and trust. They know you and your medical history, and they can promptly provide truly personalized medical care.

Another advantage you gain from Family and Internal Medicine Center is their multispecialty expertise. You receive holistic care for the full scope of medical, emotional, behavioral, and social challenges you may face.

Your family medicine provider also offers health assessments. These routine evaluations are recommended at certain ages to identify possible risks for long-term health conditions.

Concerns such as being overweight, not exercising, following an unhealthy diet, and having habits like smoking pose a significant risk to your long-term health.

Changing your risk factors before a chronic (long-lasting) illness develops can prevent serious problems like Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Your Family and Internal Medicine Center provider works with you to create a lifestyle plan that supports your ongoing health.
