What do family doctors do?
Family doctors are physicians who care for people of all ages, from infants to seniors, and are trained to treat many health conditions. Family physicians take care of your preventative health care, which includes disease prevention, mental and emotional needs, stress management, weight and nutritional counseling, and fertility and family planning care. Family physicians can also identify and diagnose any emerging conditions and screen you for any serious conditions, such as cancer. Family doctors also help you manage any chronic illness you have, like asthma, stroke, heart disease, among others. And ultimately, your family physician can refer you to specialists, coordinate with physical therapists, pharmacies, social workers, and mental health physicians. In short, your family doctor is your one-stop-shop for health care!
