Family Medicine

Unlike internal medicine physicians, or internists, who focus solely on adults, family medicine physicians are trained to care for men, women and children of all ages.

Family medicine physicians provide a full range of healthcare services, including routine obstetrics, gynecological and pediatric care. They also offer continuous care for a variety of complex and sometimes chronic medical conditions that may involve multiple systems.

In addition to providing preventive and ongoing care, family medicine physicians also serve as the first point-of-contact for patients with an undiagnosed health concern, act on behalf of patients when collaborating with and referring to specialists, coordinate care with hospitals and other facilities and serve as the repository for patient records.
