Why choose a family medicine specialist for primary care?

Many families find that having a family medicine specialist provide primary care for the entire family offers several benefits. The convenience of being able to schedule all appointments at a single doctor's office can be significant – especially for those caring for children and aging parents simultaneously. Even when a single family member is scheduled for treatment, the physician will often check on other family members who are present.

Treating an entire family gives the family medicine specialist a better understanding of the family's health history and dynamics, enabling them to provide more effective care. For teenagers who no longer feel comfortable visiting a pediatrician's office, a family medicine specialist is a great alternative.
