Your general doctors can provide you with the care you need. Your health is their priority.

What is general medicine?

Your doctors provide you with the custom-care you need for all the health issues you may endure. They will guide you through those general health concerns or questions you inquire about.

They have received extensive medical training in order to prevent, diagnose and treat diseases other specialized physicians may not be able to treat because they lack the training. Doctors practicing family and general medicine generally receive training in being able to handle a variety of health concerns, issues and disorders compared to other medical professionals; they don't focus on just one organ system no matter the complexity. So your doctors can help treat your pneumonia or diabetes.

They will:

  • Create treatment plans with health professionals

  • Treat and diagnose health issues

  • Offer advice and tips for health problems

How often should you visit your doctor?

Illness can strike at any time so visiting your family doctor regularly and having routine checkups can help prevent and avoid major diseases spiraling out of control by providing routine visits, immunizations and screenings.

It's also vital to have a consistent doctor so that they are aware of your medical history, like what you may be allergic to. Having a consistent doctor that you visit regularly and who can help diagnose a vast number of diseases is not only smart but can also result in faster and better overall care.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding your health and don't know who to turn to, their extensive knowledge of the body and all the systems will not only help them treat you but they will guide you to the specialist you need if that is the case.

Your health is very important! Call your doctor with any questions today!
