What Is a Family Medicine Doctor?
A family medicine doctor practices holistic healthcare. This means that they focus on treatment that addresses the patient’s physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual needs. They believe that what affects one area of your health will eventually affect other areas as well. For instance, if you are in chronic pain, you may have trouble sleeping, working, eating, exercising, and spending time with family and friends. A family medicine physician will look for the underlying cause of your health problem, to both treat it and prevent it from recurring. Family medicine specialists undergo the same education and training as all other medical doctors and specialists, with a focus on treating patients of all ages from infancy to elderly, in all major medical areas, including:
- Chronic conditions like diabetes, asthma, and heart disease
- Acute problems, like illnesses, infections, pain, headaches, and migraines
- Preventive care, including screening, immunization, and lifestyle counseling
- Minor surgical procedures
- Bone and joint care
- Ear, nose, and throat care
- Skin conditions
- Well-woman care, including family planning
- Mental health issues

Medicaid, Medicare, and Discounted Family Services
We accept all patients, whether or not they have insurance.

We also accept Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare is a federal health insurance program for anyone 65 years and older, or anyone who is under 65 but has qualifying disabilities or conditions.
