Family Physicians Practice Today’s Medicine
What really is a Family Physician? Family Physicians learn and use the most up-to-date treatments and technologies. Unlike General Practitioners, Family Physicians are trained for three additional years in real practice settings treating children and adults in the office as well as in the hospital. Board Certified Family Physicians must re-certify more often than any other medical specialty. With this Continuing Medical Education, it means that Family Physicians are experts at applying the latest medical breakthroughs to the every day care of the patient, so patients benefit from state-of-the-art advancements as they become available.
Family Physicians are specialty trained in preventative medicine and believe that preventing a health problem is better than having to overcome one. They assist patients in making the right health choices, which helps keep their families both happier and healthier. Their role is to diagnose and treat the entire family.
