The Benefits of Having a Family Medicine Doctor for Your Whole Family

Posted on February 01, 2023

Family medicine doctors are essential to the overall well-being of yourself, your family, and your friends. They provide comprehensive continuity of care throughout your life, regardless of age. Family Doctors cater to several different needs rather than one specific specialty. Yearly visits with your doctor will help manage preventative care, diagnose emerging conditions, and manage chronic illness.

Annual Visits

Being consistent with annual exams, screenings, preventative care, and education with your doctor is essential to measuring your health from year to year. Your doctor should also be the first person you contact with any health-related questions. When there are concerns beyond their scope of work, they will work with you to find a referral to a specialist who can better assist you.

From Babies to Grandparents

A family medicine doctor will see patients of all ages, from infants to seniors. The bonus of having the same doctor for your entire family is that they will know your whole family’s health history from generations down. This will help your doctor set proper preventative care plans for you.

The Convenience Factor

A significant convenience factor of having one doctor for your entire family is the ability to schedule everyone’s annual appointments in one visit. This can be extremely helpful for those families with schedules that are already busy.

Diagnosis and Treatment

The services provided include immunizations, check-ups, sports physicals, lab work, minor procedures, family planning, and more. In addition, they will diagnose and treat acute and chronic illnesses to minor injuries.

  • Acute Illness: Fever, Cough, Sore Throat, Rash, Ear Pain

  • Chronic Illness: Diabetes, Hypertension, Heart Disease

  • Minor Injuries: Fractures, Lacerations
