Why are family doctors so important?

  • They are familiar with the physical, emotional and lifestyle factors that can affect the health and well-being of every member of your family.
  • They are the consistent medical presence through every stage of your life.
  • Their wide range of training allows them to diagnose and treat a variety of conditions
  • They maintain all of your health records in one place, making it easy to access up-to-date immunization records, test results and other medical information.
  • With a focus on preventive care, they take steps to ensure you receive important age- and health-appropriate health screenings, such as vaccines, colonoscopies, mammograms, and prostate exams.
