What is a Family Physician?

A Family Physician is a medical doctor who specializes in Family Medicine. Family doctors provide continuity of care for individuals and families over the life span. The specialty integrates body, mind, and spirit in caring for the whole patient. The scope of Family Medicine encompasses all ages, genders, organ systems, and disease entities. Family Medicine Physicians provide primary care for life.
