What does a family physician do?
Trained in all areas of medicine, family physicians can diagnose and treat the full range of problems people typically bring to their doctors. They know how to care for you and, if necessary when to bring in another specialist.
Family physicians are experts in prevention, treating most acute illnesses and helping people effectively manage chronic medical problems. They are at the center of your care, coordinating and guiding you through what can be a very confusing and fragmented healthcare system. Regular visits to a family physician have even been shown to lower the overall costs of health care and improve your health.
Most importantly, your family physician is trained to provide comprehensive care through all the stages of your life. They also care for your physical, mental and emotional health.
Whether you are well and looking to stay that way, or become ill or injured, you can look to Hugh Chatham Family Medicine for the right healthcare at the right time.
