|What is Family Medicine?
Some doctors don’t have to look at a chart to know your name or how you’re feeling. They may have treated your mother, father, sisters and brothers. Being the primary provider for families and knowing the health history of a patient’s relatives offers Family Medicine physicians valuable information.Family physicians specialize in caring for the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of their patients and their families. They know how your family's health history and situation can affect your health and are trained to care for you through all the stages of your life. Family Medicine doctors are also primary care providers.
