Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is a medical specialty that focuses on care for patients of all ages. Because of this, families benefit from visiting family medicine specialists where each member can receive care from the same provider.

In short, family medicine clinics are one-stop shops for families who would otherwise need to visit pediatricians, internists, and other doctors to meet all of their needs.

Family medicine includes patients of all ages and genders. Family medicine specialists like Dr. Ansari and his team comprehensively evaluate all organ systems and can diagnose and treat a wide array of diseases.

What are the benefits of visiting a family medicine specialist?

There are several benefits of finding a family medicine doctor for you and your family. First and foremost, having one doctor for all members of your family is convenient. Visiting one doctor for everyone is much easier than scheduling multiple appointments at more than one clinic.

Other benefits of having a family doctor include:

  • They know your family’s medical history
  • They monitor your child’s growth and development
  • They know your family’s unique needs, beliefs, and preferences
  • You can receive many treatments, including some minor surgeries, from a family doctor

Your family doctor can give you guidance on how to care for your family at home, too. Once your child becomes an adult, they can continue receiving care from your family doctor who knows them well.

What services are included in family medicine?

It should come as no surprise that family medicine at Primary & Urgent Care encompasses both primary and urgent care.

Primary care

Primary care includes regular checkups, exams, vaccinations, and other preventive care. It also includes treatment for diseases that aren’t life-threatening or urgent. Primary care doctors can diagnose and treat many diseases and are your first point of contact for health-related questions and concerns.

Urgent care

Urgent care is reserved for conditions that aren’t life-threatening but require immediate attention. Unlike primary care, you don’t need to schedule an appointment weeks in advance for urgent care for issues such as fevers, rashes, vomiting, mystery pain, and more.

If you need a doctor who can treat your entire family and get to know them well, call Primary & Urgent Care today to meet with Dr. Ansari.
