Family medicine is the medical specialty that specializes in providing care on a continuing basis to the family as a group and to its individual members. It requires three years of specialized training following medical school. This allows a family physician to provide care for infants, children, adolescents, adults and the elderly. By knowing and caring for the entire family, we are able to provide more comprehensive and cost effective care. If your illness requires a specialist, we will continue to coordinate your care to ensure you receive appropriate quality care.
