A family medicine provider cares for the health of an individual and their family. Providers are trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of ailments in patients of all ages. Special emphasis is placed on prevention and the primary care of entire families. This includes utilizing consultations and community resources.
All board-certified family physicians have completed a three-year internship and residency program, which includes training in pediatrics, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery, psychiatry, geriatrics, and community medicine. This provides them with the ability to treat the majority of all illnesses and injuries. Your family physician is also concerned about preventative medicine - this means being just as interested in keeping you healthy as in getting you well.

Why do I need a primary care provider?
You’re young, you’re healthy and you’re very, very busy. You might be asking yourself, “do I really need a primary care provider?” The short answer: Yes, you do.
Having a primary care provider will keep you healthier as you age. This includes lower risk of dying from cancer, heart disease or stroke. The reason for this is what’s known as “continuity of care.” This means that you establish a relationship with a health care provider and you enhance that relationship year after year. This provider knows your habits, manages ongoing conditions or ensures your being properly screened for disease.
For these reasons and more, if you don’t have a primary care provider, there is no better time to establish one!
