What Is a Family Medicine Doctor?

A family doctor advises patients on a range of physical and mental health issues. The connection between mind and body is central to diagnosis and treatment. Important genetic connections between family members can affect health. Family physicians use broader variables to better understand your overall health and suggest options for improving.

Family doctors make good health managers. They know when to bring in medical specialists and how to coordinate care for optimal outcomes. They’re also trained in preventative care to help you prevent diseases.

There’s no “typical” patient for a family doctor. Unlike pediatricians and internists, family doctors must be able to provide care for all ages and genders — meaning they also must be equipped to treat virtually any type of disease.

It’s also important that family physicians consider their patients’ lives and family matters when treating them. The most unique part about being a family doctor is the physician’s opportunity to care for their patients and impact their health over their entire lifetime.

What Does Family Medicine Treat?

Family medicine specialists treat a range of conditions, from a child’s ear infection to adult-onset diabetes. They can diagnose and treat most of the common issues that find their way into a doctor’s office, such as pediatric conditions, aging issues, and most things in between — all in one place. If something arises and we need to refer you to a specialist, we will coordinate your care with the appropriate outside specialists. We work with the specialist behind the scenes to stay involved and informed of your treatment plan until its completion.  This is just what we do to ensure the highest quality outcomes for our patients

Healthy Living accepts patients of all ages. We really enjoy and prefer to see the entire family because that allows us to understand the family dynamic of our patients.  We take that information into consideration when deciding the approach and the specific treatment plan to keep all members of the family healthy and happy.
