What is Family Medicine?
Family medicine is a medical specialty providing comprehensive health care for the individual and the family. It’s a form of primary care devoted to a broad scope of medicine, including all ages, both sexes, each organ system and every disease.
What is a Family Physician?
Family physicians have distinct attitudes, skills and knowledge qualifying them to provide comprehensive health care. Because of their background and interactions with the family, these specialists are best qualified to serve as each patient’s advocate in all health-related matters.
If a referral is indicated, your family physician may refer you to a specialist but will remain the comprehensive coordinator of your health care. Through an on-going relationship with a Baptist Medical Group family physician, you and yours will receive exceptional care.
