A family medicine doctor can provide lifelong, comprehensive care for all ages. From the young to the young at heart — they are here to serve you through all life stages. The primary care doctor in a family practice is trained in both pediatric and adult medicine. This makes it convenient for families who want care delivered in the same clinic. Also, patients can see the same doctor for care from childhood through adulthood.
Over a lifetime of care, doctors get to know you and help you stay healthy. Your family medicine doctor coordinates all aspects of your health. The doctor then oversees care from specialists. Building that long-term relationship with one doctor can lead to better care — better care from someone who knows your entire health history and understands what you value.
