What is family medicine?

Family medicine is a type of primary care that caters to patients of all ages, essentially everyone in your family. 

These physicians can practice as internal medicine doctors or pediatricians. Internists treat adult patients while pediatricians take care of children. 

Family physicians don’t cater to a particular age group. Instead, they are primary care doctors who can diagnose and treat everyone.

What do family doctors do?

A family medicine doctor provides comprehensive care to the whole family, including outpatient care like preventive services and diagnosing and treating illness. For example, they offer:

  • Annual physicals
  • Wellness visits
  • Immunizations
  • Health screenings
  • Sick visits
  • Chronic disease management

They can also offer lifestyle advice to help you and your family stay as healthy as possible. 

This could include dietary advice, weight management, or smoking cessation. They are also responsible for managing complex medical situations and medical issues.

When should I see a family physician?

You should see your family physicians at least once a year for your annual physical or wellness visit. Young children need to see their provider more frequently, depending on their age. 

Additionally, you may need to regularly visit your family doctor for testing and disease management care if you have a chronic health issue.

What are the benefits of family medicine?

There are many benefits of seeing family physicians. For example, you can see the same family medicine doctor as you age. As a result, your doctor truly knows you and your health needs, resulting in excellent continuity of care.

An enduring and trusting relationship with your family doctor also improves preventive care, reducing your risk of illness and long-term health issues. 

Your doctor will also know about every medication you take and can take steps to avoid unwanted pharmaceutical interactions. 

Additionally, if everyone in your family sees the same doctor, you can schedule appointments together, avoiding multiple trips and saving you time and money.
