Family Medicine Q & A
What is family medicine?
Family medicine, formerly known as family practice, is a medical specialty devoted to comprehensive health care for people of all ages. It is a form of primary care that provides continuing and comprehensive health care to all members of a family regardless of age or sex.
Family medicine practitioners undergo extensive training that includes rotations through all the major areas of medicine, such as pediatrics, OB/GYN, orthopedics, and psychiatry. This extensive training allows them to provide the comprehensive care you and your family need.
What can I expect with family medicine care?
You can expect warm, compassionate, and genuine care when coming in to see the family medicine team at Genesis Natural Medicine Center. The specifics of your care may depend on your age, sex, and your reason for the visit.
However, the team spends quality time obtaining detailed information about your symptoms, health history, family history, medication and supplement use, diet, exercise habits, stress levels, and general lifestyle. This information allows them to get a better picture of your overall health and wellness needs, and identify any underlying factors that may be affecting your health.
Then the team conducts a physical exam, which may include diagnostic tests, such as a blood draw or urinalysis, to assess your current health status.
After your evaluation, the team reviews their findings and then works one-on-one with you developing a treatment plan. The primary focus of family medicine is prevention, so your plan may include diet and exercise recommendations, as well as tools to help alleviate stress and improve overall wellness.
If your visit was for a specific health concern, the team may provide specific recommendations to improve or resolve your health issue.
Can family medicine help me manage a chronic condition?
Due to their extensive training, family medicine providers can diagnose and treat any acute or chronic health condition. The team at Genesis Natural Medicine Center can serve as the primary provider for your chronic condition to ensure you get the care you need, which may include specific testing or treatments, or referrals to specialists.
