There are many advantages to having a family doctor treat you and your family. At Wellspire Medical Group we take excellent family care to the next level. We believe in growing and nurturing strong relationships with our patients because we know their current health is just part of the equation. We want to ensure our patients future health is just as much of a priority as their current. This is why developing these strong relationships are important to us because there is no better way to prepare our patients for what may come their way, than by having an in depth understanding of them and their family’s medical history.
Below is a list of some of the top reasons everyone should have a family doctor:
Family History: Family doctors treat all ages from toddlers to geriatric patients. This means if your family chooses to have one family doctor, they can treat you for years or even decades. If you go to the same doctor as your children this will give your family doctor the ability to spot genetic patterns and vulnerabilities.
This can be very helpful when it comes to making proper diagnoses and catching symptoms early on that may otherwise go undetected for years. Outside of knowing patient’s medical histories, having a doctor who knows about your lifestyle can go a long way in giving you personable care that works for you.
Wide Range: Family doctors have a wide range of problems they can treat you for. They are not just here for when you catch a cold or need a check-up. Family doctors can help manage symptoms of diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and more. They also can perform minor surgical procedures, such as draining abscesses, removing ingrown toenails and more.
Give You Referrals: In the event you need to see a specialist your family doctor can give you a referral for someone who treats your condition and also someone who they believe will be a good fit for who you are. This can be helpful for those who have strong personalities or preferences.
