WHAT IS FAMILY MEDICINE ?
Family Medicine includes experience in the care of newborn infants, pediatrics, routine gynecology, internal medicine, and geriatrics. Your physician is trained in office surgery. Some procedures done in the office include suturing of wounds, treatment of burns, and the removal of moles, warts and skin cancers. Other procedures done in the office include EKGs, ear lavages, spirometry, biopsies, blood work and other tests as recommended by our medical staff. Some medical problems may require consultation with a specialist in a particular field. If this becomes necessary, your physician will work with the specialist and continue to provide you with ongoing health care. The physician also admits patients to several nursing homes and hospitals.
The key to a successful medical practice is communication. Your questions concerning the medical practice are invited. Remember that maintenance of health care varies widely from patient to patient-from advising a physical exam every year to more frequent check-ups for those with complex problems. Your questions are invited as to the plan that might best fit your health care needs. In a managed care plan, your family doctor is your health care manager.
