Because of their extensive training, family medicine physicians treat most ailments and provide comprehensive health care for people of all ages – from newborns to seniors. They deliver a range of acute, chronic and preventive medical care services.
In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, family medicine physicians also provide preventative care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, sports physicals, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They also manage chronic illness, often coordinating care provided by other subspecialists.
