Most medical specialists focus on a particular part of the body or a specific type of disease. Physicians who specialize in family medicine provide comprehensive care to patients of all ages with all sorts of conditions.
When someone has a non-emergency health concern, they often see a family physician first. Because they focus on the “whole patient” and provide treatment over long time periods, family physicians are uniquely suited to providing preventive care and managing chronic and complex conditions. They also screen for early signs of serious conditions.
The key elements of family medicine are preventing health problems and reducing health risks. The family physician knows a great deal about the patient’s health history and medical needs, which enables the physician to help patients get and stay healthy.
