Family Medicine encompasses all ages, genders, each organ system, and every disease entity, providing continuing, comprehensive health care for the individual and family. Family physicians are also trained to pay special attention to their patients’ lives within the context of family and the community.
Family Medicine physicians are able to see essentially any patient (children, adolescents, adults and the elderly), and can provide many services for their patients, with a strong focus on preventive care. This allows a family physician to have the opportunity to have an impact on a patient’s health over his or her entire lifetime. In essence, Family Medicine is about a healthcare relationship with the patient.
