What is the role of a family doctor?
The general role of a family doctor is to provide primary care for everyone in a family. This means the doctor will provide treatments for common health issues, as well as services to help everyone avoid health issues in the first place. A family doctor can also help family members avoid chronic health conditions like diabetes, or if someone in the family has a chronic condition, the doctor can provide symptom management services.
A family doctor can also identify any health issues that run in a family. For example, if a family member has diabetes, the doctor might be able to identify signs of the condition in other family members.
What do family doctors do?
A family doctor treats common illnesses, some chronic conditions, and other issues in adults, seniors, and kids. A family doctor can also help prevent health issues. There are other services family doctors provide, and there are complementary services our doctors provide here at Suburban Healthcare Associates. Some of our services are:
- Routine well visits

What should I consider when looking for a family doctor?
You might want to look for certain qualities in a new family doctor. For example, you might want to look for compassion or patience. You might also want to consider whether the family doctor:
- Is able to accommodate any special needs your family has
- Has availability that suits you
- Is located near your home for quick, convenient access
You should also consider having a meet-and-greet with a physician! During a simple meet-and-greet, you’ll get to know the physician and get a feeling for them. Once you have an impression, you should be able to decide whether you’d like the physician to become your new family physician.
