Families looking for a North Shore primary care doctor can find exceptional family medicine specialists affiliated with North Shore Medical Center (NSMC). Family medicine specialists provide care for all members of a family, from infants through adults.

NSMC has close to 40 family medicine specialists with offices throughout the region, including many doctors who offer night and weekend hours.

Why family medicine specialists are preferred by many families.

Convenience is one benefit for families who have chosen a family medicine specialist. Scheduling back-to-back appointments for multiple family members is easier with a family medicine practice. In addition, parents bringing one family member for an appointment often find that family medicine specialists can easily check on other family members who are present.

Family medicine doctors tend to have a better grasp of family health history and the health dynamics between generations, which helps them to provide more consistent care. For teenagers who no longer feel comfortable visiting a pediatrician's office, family medicine specialists are an attractive alternative.
