Family Medicine

Patients often express that the main concerns they have when they are receiving medical care are misdiagnosis and mistreatment of their medical issues. This leads to unnecessarily prolonged sickness, due to either not knowing the causes of the patient’s symptoms, or ineffective treatment of these symptoms. Having a family doctor involved in your care can solve and prevent these issues.

What is Family Medicine?

Family medicine provides continuing, comprehensive health care for you and your family. Family medicine emphasizes disease prevention and health promotion, by identifying the root cause of your medical issue, and either treating it, or referring you to the appropriate specialist. Visiting a family doctor reduces your chances of being misdiagnosed or mistreated, because your doctor will assess your body as a whole, in the context of lifestyle and family history, rather than focusing on a specific organ or body part. As well, the longterm followup provided by your family doctor will give you peace of mind that you will always be looked after.
