What is Family Medicine?
In this era of highly technical, specialized medicine, it is easy as a patient to be overwhelmed by the sheer volume and complexity of tests and seemingly endless referrals that can occur throughout the course of one’s clinical evaluation. Fortunately, here at SDC our family medicine physicians identify this and understand your need for a more personal touch. Our family medicine team focuses not just on treating an acute illness but as well on continuous, comprehensive health maintenance for every member of your family.
Our family medicine team’s holistic approach emphasizes:
- acute and chronic medical care
- health risk assessment of each family member
- scheduling personal health maintenance exams and vaccinations according to individual risk factors
- specialty referral when necessary
