Family medicine physicians are unique in their focus on the family as a unit and how family interactions affect health. If you seek care that takes a holistic view of your entire family’s health when caring for any one family member, consider partnering with a MedStar family medicine physician.
MedStar family medicine physicians deliver a range of services to all members of the family—and always with the family in mind. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized healthy lifestyle counseling.
Like an internist or primary care physician, MedStar family medicine physicians also manage chronic illness and regularly coordinate care provided by specialists. MedStar Health family physicians are trained in a variety of areas, including adult medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, orthopedics, gynecology, obstetrics, office surgery, behavioral health, and sex and family counseling.
Examples of the services we offer include:
- Preventive Health: well-child care, adult physicals, geriatric assessments, well-woman exams, contraceptive maintenance, school physicals, weight-loss guidance
- Chronic Disease Management: high blood pressure, acne, diabetes, hypothyroidism, depression, anxiety, allergies, asthma, complex disabilities
- Acute Care: injuries (sprains, car accidents, burns, etc.), illnesses (sore throats, coughs, STDs, headaches, etc.)
