What is a Family Medicine Physician?
A Family Medicine Physician is a medical specialist who is trained in the Specialty of Family Medicine. Like other specialists, Family Medicine Physicians complete an extensive three-year residency program after graduating from medical school.
A Family Medicine Physician provides comprehensive medical care for all members of the family. Instead of specializing in only one area of medical care, Family Medicine Physicians are trained in all major medical areas; from surgery to internal medicine, dermatology to psychiatry, gynecology to pediatrics, orthopedics to sports medicine and well child care to preventive medicine.
When a referral is necessary, your Family Medicine Physician’s background in so many sub-specialties assists in guiding you to the proper sub-specialist. Also, your Family Medicine Physician’s emphasis on preventive health care can improve your health at the lowest possible cost.
