Why Does Family Medicine Matter?

A Family Doctor is your personal physician, for you and your family, for people of all ages.  

It has been shown that simply having a continuing relationship with a Primary Care Doctor will reduce your healthcare costs by 25% and create better long term health outcomes. Immune health is more important than ever and requires a doctor that looks at you as a WHOLE human being, evaluating and coordinating every part of your complex health profile.

Family Medicine is not limited by organ systems, gender, age, or health problems. Family physicians provide “first stop” diagnoses and treatment as well as preventive care and management of complex, chronic disease. They also advise, refer and coordinate your care amongst specialists within a very complicated healthcare system. A Primary Care Doctor knows you PERSONALLY and manages your care from beginning to end, looking at the big picture of your health and healing in a way no other physicians do or can.

Family Physicians complete an undergraduate degree, medical school and three to four more years of specialized residency training in family medicine. They also keep up to date with the current information, with a minimum of 50 hours of continuing medical education each year (although this web designer can vouch that Dr. B does several hundred CE per year). Investing in Family Medicine improves your health, saves you money, and provides a better overall healthcare experience.
