A Partnership in Health
Today's family physician is your partner in a lifetime of good health.
Family physicians focus on preventive as well as curative medicine
and they work with patient to help educate them in way to stay healthy.
Because family physicians can treat the entire family and understand
the family's total health picture, they derive a unique and invaluable
health perspective. The result is that each family member receives
better overall health management. And with more patient visits made
to family physicians than to any other type of doctor, family physicians
are the doctors of choice everywhere in America.
Special Training, Special Care
Family physicians, unlike general practitioners, complete an extensive
three year residency in the specialty of "Family Practice." This program
trains family physicians in a variety of medical fields including
pediatrics, internal medicine, preventive medicine, obstetric/gynecology,
and geriatrics. Family Physicians are also qualified to care for individuals
of any age. Some say the family doctor disappeared with the horse
and buggy. Happily, family medicine is alive and well thanks to the
50,000 practicing Family Physicians in America. Source: Reader's Digest
