What is Family Medicine?

Family medicine is a medical specialty devoted to comprehensive healthcare for people of all ages. Family physicians are trained to provide care across all ages, sexes, and systems of the body. Here’s a snapshot of what makes family medicine unique:

  • Continuity of Care: Unlike other specialties focusing on specific organs or diseases, family medicine emphasizes building long-term relationships with patients.
  • Holistic Approach: Family doctors consider physical, emotional, and social factors in treatment.
  • Comprehensive Services: They can diagnose and treat various conditions, from acute illnesses to chronic diseases.

The Philosophy of Three Rivers Family Medicine

At Three Rivers Family Medicine, our approach revolves around several key principles:

  1. Patient-Centered Care: We believe in treating each patient as an individual, not just a symptom. Our providers take the time to listen and understand your unique needs.
  2. Preventive Health: Prevention is better than cure. We emphasize regular screenings, vaccinations, and lifestyle changes to keep your family healthy.
  3. Continuity of Care: From infancy to old age, we aim to be your healthcare partners through every stage of life.
  4. Community Engagement: We are deeply rooted in our community and strive to promote health and wellness beyond our clinic walls.
