Primary Care & Family Medicine

Family Medicine

Primary care is the medical discipline where there is one physician that meets most of your healthcare needs, from the common cold to advice and direction on specialty care. Family medicine physicians best meet those needs as they are trained in the diverse field of medicine as a whole. They are equipped with the knowledge of understanding conditions treated in the primary care setting and those that warrant a specialist’s referral.

From common skin problems to more complex cardiovascular diseases, family medicine physicians are well-trained to manage most patients’ needs.

For more information on the family physician, please visit the American Academy of Family Physicians.
