United Hospital Family Medicine doctors provide comprehensive, compassionate, and continuous care to patients and their family members. Family Medicine doctors can assume responsibility for the total health care needs of the individual and family, including medical, social, and behavioral issues. We believe that addressing the preventive and medical care concerns for men, women and children of all ages not only makes good sense, it makes for good health. Our team works closely with other physicians and programs throughout United Hospital.
The Department of Family Medicine focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of non-surgical conditions in adults. The department provides a wide range of high quality cross-specialty health care services, including physical examinations, preventive screenings and immunizations, urgent care for medical conditions, and referrals to surgical specialists when appropriate. Our Family Medicine Consultants have had broad-based training in General Medicine and in one or more subspecialties. The presence of clinicians with different subspecialty training in the department allows an integrated approach to patient care and helps to limit the volume of referral to other subspecialty departments.
