Family Medicine Q&A

What is family medicine?

Doctors specializing in family medicine are qualified to diagnose and treat most health problems for people of all ages while also considering the impact of health on the patient’s entire family. 

Your family medicine doctor at Village Family Medicine PC cares for everyone regardless of their age or health issues, developing long-term relationships that improve the quality of health care for each patient. Other health specializations are limited to a specific organ, disease, or age group.

Family medicine providers receive extensive education beyond medical school, including training in pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, surgery, psychiatry, neurology, and community medicine.

Is family medicine the same as primary care?

Yes, Village Family Medicine PC serves as your primary care doctor for all routine and preventive health care and your first point of contact for any health concerns. If you need to see a specialist, the medical team refers you to an appropriate doctor and provides care coordination among specialists and hospitals as needed.

Primary care facilities with internal medicine doctors only care for adult patients, while pediatricians only provide care for children and adolescents. Family medicine providers are primary care doctors who see people from birth to senior citizens.

What are the benefits of a concierge-style family medicine practice?

Village Family Medicine PC is a concierge family medicine practice, providing members with highly personalized, comprehensive, and preventive health care. Traditional primary care practices have thousands of patients while a concierge practice has only a few hundred patients, allowing more time for each patient. 

It’s easier to get a better understanding of a patient’s medical history and family medical history when a doctor has more time with each patient. A comprehensive look at your health enables better preventive care and more accurate diagnoses. 

The Village Family Medicine PC team takes a holistic approach to health care, managing common and long-term illnesses while focusing on each individual’s overall health and well-being.

Having fewer patients allows more accessibility to your doctor. Village Family Medicine PC offers same-day appointments and walk-in availability for acute care needs.

If you’re in need of a new primary care doctor or want high-quality, comprehensive care for your entire family, call Village Family Medicine PC or schedule an appointment online today.
