Our family physicians provide routine health checkups and counseling. They help you to make healthy life style choices, maintain or improve health, and prevent illness. If you have issues that require special attention, our family physician can recommend a doctor who has the expertise you need. We often collaborate with other health care professionals to ensure that our patients receive the best care possible. By developing long-term relations with you, our family physicians are uniquely positioned to answer many questions about your health. Research even shows that patients who have an ongoing relationship with their family physicians have better overall health, lower death rates, and lower health care costs.
