Providers that practice Family Medicine cover a broad spectrum of medicine in terms of patients, diagnoses and reasons for visit. Patients span from pediatrics to geriatrics and Family Medicine could be considered the first line of care when it comes to diagnosing common ailments and referring more specific needs to specialized providers.

Most common Diagnoses

Due to the broad nature of their practice, Family Medicine providers can diagnose many different conditions ranging from a fungal infection of the toe nail all the way up to alopecia (hair loss.)
Family Medicine sees patients for both sick visits and well/health maintenance visits.
