Family Medicine Q & A

Christos Doctors Inn Walk In Healthcare

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is the practice of providing comprehensive general health care services to every member of your family, from your kids to your grandparents. Family medicine encompasses annual physical exams, school and sports physicals, immunizations, and treatment for acute and chronic conditions that don’t require urgent care.

What does a family medicine specialist do?

A family medicine provider like Dr. Smith offers comprehensive care to every member of your family, helping to improve everyone’s overall health and well-being. Your annual physical is one of the most important services Dr. Smith provides.

Your routine checkups allow him to monitor your health and well-being by checking and recording your vital signs, like your blood pressure, heartbeat, lung function, and weight. Routine blood tests help him monitor your glucose and cholesterol levels, which are key indicators of common conditions like diabetes and heart disease risk. You also have a conversation with Dr. Smith about your lifestyle and any medical concerns you might be having.

In addition to preventive health care, if you or a family member have a medical condition like diabetes, high blood pressure, or asthma, Dr. Smith provides treatment and care to help you manage your symptoms and improve your health and well-being. He also offers school and sports physicals and immunizations to make sure your children are fit and healthy for school and their favorites sports.

Why are annual checkups important?

Annual physicals are a critical part of preventive health care. Many serious medical conditions don’t cause symptoms in their early stages when it’s easier to treat or manage them. Taking time out once a year to check in on your health not only provides you with peace of mind that you’re healthy and fit, but allows Dr. Smith to keep records of your health so if something changes or a simple vital sign like your blood pressures starts to creep up, he can help you address the issue before it turns into a more serious medical condition.
