Does my family need a family physician?
There are a couple reasons to get a physician for your entire family. One reason is that the physician can provide primary care for everyone in your family. This means you’ll all have access to treatments for common health issues, as well as services to help you avoid health issues in the first place. The physician can also help your family avoid chronic health conditions like diabetes, or if you or a family member has a chronic condition, the physician can help manage it.
There’s another very good reason to get a family physician. A family physician may be able to easily identify any health issues that run in the family. For example, if a member of your family has a heart condition, the physician may be able to easily identify signs of the condition in other family members.
What does a family doctor treat?
A family doctor treats common illnesses, some chronic conditions, and other issues in adults, seniors, and children. A family doctor can screen for and prevent these issues too. There are other healthcare services a family doctor provides, and there are complementary services our doctors provide at Suburban Healthcare Associates. Some of our common services include:
- Regular wellness checkups
- Virtual doctor’s visits
- Care for patients with high blood pressure
- Medical weight-loss programs
- Asthma and allergy care
- Care for diabetics
- Treatment for thyroid disorder
- Pediatric care
- Women’s healthcare services
- Travel medicine
- Cosmetic services like skin rejuvenation
- And more
If you need a service we didn’t mention above, please contact our clinic. We may still be able to help you!
What should I look for when finding a new family doctor?
You should look for certain characteristics in a new family doctor. For example, you may want to look for compassion or trustworthiness. You might also want to consider whether the doctor:
- Is located near you for convenient access
- Has availability that suits you
- Can meet any special needs your family has
The best way to find out whether a physician would be right for your family is to have a meet-and-greet! During a meet-and-greet, you’ll get to know the physician and get a feeling for them, and this will help you decide whether you’d like the physician to become your new family physician.
