Family Medicine Q&A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is a medical specialty that is broad enough to cover the needs of all ages. If you’re in search of a single medical practice where you can bring your entire family, Advanced Family Medicine welcomes the oldest and youngest members of your family as well as everyone in-between.

Your family medicine providers at Advanced Family Medicine place extra emphasis on the importance of preventive care for all ages. Preventive care is the care and guidance you receive when you’re not sick or injured. It reduces your risk for various illnesses and injuries that could harm you in the future. 

In terms of preventive care, Advanced Family Medicine offers preventive physical exams as well as vaccinations for a wide range of diseases. Your family provider can teach you to make wellness a priority in your household and keep everyone as healthy as possible. 

What does family medicine involve?

Family medicine covers the age-specific needs of multiple groups. At Advanced Family Medicine, you and your family can access:

Newborn care

Newborns need lots of extra attention in their first few weeks of life. Your provider tells you when and how often to bring your new baby in for baby wellness checks. They can also coordinate care with newborn intensive care unit (NICU) providers. 

Pediatric care

Pediatric care is medical services for kids and adolescents under 18. Your child’s provider at Advanced Family Medicine keeps their developmental needs in mind and can provide services like sick visits, sports physicals, scout physicals, and wellness exams. 

Adult care

Geriatric care

Geriatric care is medical care for the elderly. Advanced Family Medicine can help manage multiple chronic diseases and disabilities and works closely with hospice agencies for end-of-life care.
