Family Medicine provides continuing, comprehensive health care for the individual and family. Family medicine’s scope encompasses all ages and genders, each organ system, and every disease entity and integrates the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences.

Family physicians deliver a range of acute, chronic and preventive medical care services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family physicians also manage chronic illness, often coordinating care provided by other subspecialists.
