Family medicine, also known as family practice, is the medical specialty that provides comprehensive care for the individual and family. Family practice physicians primarily diagnose and treat a wide variety of issues that people are seeking general treatment and advice on. These practitioners cover all areas of general health care including pediatric and adolescent health, women’s health and gynecology, men’s health and aging issues.
At the heart of family medicine is the patient-physician relationship. Our physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and staff members all value, develop and nurture this relationship between you and your family members and UHD. You can depend on complete, personal care from medical professionals who take special interest in your unique health needs and in you as a person. They view every aspect of a person’s life as important to overall health. In addition to providing for your primary care needs, our family medicine providers can refer you to specialty care as needed.
