Family Medicine Q & A
What is family medicine?
Family medicine is a branch of primary care that focuses on the health and wellness of your entire family, from newborn to old age. Your family medicine provider is your main advocate for prevention, early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of disease.
The primary objectives of your family medicine provider are:
- Preventive care oversight and planning
- Diagnosis and treatment of acute injuries or conditions
- Early detection and long-term management of chronic disease
- Coordination with an entire health care team
In planning your health care, family medicine providers think long-term, keeping more than just your current health issues in mind. They strive to support healthy lifestyles, starting at birth, that allow you to avoid disease and prevent long-term complications from common illnesses.
What services do family medicine providers offer?
Services provided by your family medicine provider focus on the health maintenance stage of development, disease prevention and early detection, and management of acute and chronic illness.
Some services offered include:
- Well newborn, infant, and child visits
- Well-woman visits
- Annual physicals
- Lab and diagnostic studies
- Cancer screenings
- Prostate and breast exams
- Birth control and vasectomies
