What is a Family Physician?

Family Practice is a broad based medical specialty that provides care for over 85% of the medical problems of most individuals and families. These comprehensively trained physicians can act as the coordinators of medical services for blood testing, radiologic examinations, pulmonary function testing, cardiac testing, and rehabilitative care.

The Family Physician can organize referrals and thereby direct the patient to the appropriate specialists, and can act as the liaison for decisions regarding all varieties of treatment options and ongoing care coordinated with all varieties of ancillary services.

Additionally, the Family Physician can provide ongoing care and management of most chronic illness with the long term goal of maintaining quality of life.

Perhaps most importantly, the Family Physician's basic philosophy emphasizes providing preventive medical care and promoting wellness. Care of the individual and family are the primary interests of the Family Physician, not just the treatment of an illness or disease.
