In addition to identifying and treating sickness, family physicians provide checkups, health-risk reviews, shots and screening tests, and personal treatment on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family doctors also manage long-lasting illness, often coordinating care provided by other doctors. From heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure to diabetes, cancer, and asthma, family physicians provide ongoing, personal care for the most serious health problems. Family doctors are the key to an ongoing, personal patient-doctor relationship focusing on life-long care. To find out more follow the link below to Health is Primary.
