Family Practice

What is a Family Physician?

Family physicians are specialists, just like obstetricians, pediatricians or surgeons. The family physician’s special job is to evaluate your total healthcare needs and maintain continuity of care. Family physicians are experts in common health conditions. They can oversee your care and serve as valuable consultants to the family in cases of more complex illnesses requiring the care of a specialist.
