Should my family have a family doctor?
There are a couple reasons to consider a doctor for your entire family. One reason is that a family doctor can provide primary care for everyone in your family, which 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 doctor can also help your family avoid chronic conditions like diabetes, or if you or a family member has a chronic condition, the doctor can help manage it.
Another reason to consider a family physician is that the physician may be able to easily identify any health issues that run in the family. For example, if one of your family members has diabetes, the physician might be able to easily identify signs of the condition in other family members.
What services does a family doctor offer?
A family doctor can treat common illnesses, some chronic conditions, and other issues in adults, seniors, and children. The family doctor can help prevent health issues too. There are other services a family doctor provides, and there are complementary services our doctors provide at Suburban Healthcare Associates. Some of our more common services are:
- Wellness checkups
- Virtual doctor’s visits over the internet

What should I look for when looking for a family doctor?
Consider looking for certain characteristics in a new family doctor. For example, you might want to look for trustworthiness or compassion. You might also want to consider whether the doctor:
- Is able to meet any special needs your family has
- Is located in your area for easy access
- Has availability that suits you
You should have a meet-and-greet with a doctor to find out whether the doctor would be right for your family. During a meet-and-greet, you’ll get to know the doctor and get a feeling for them. This should help you decide whether you’d like the doctor to become your new family practice doctor.
