What is family medicine?

Family medicine is a medical specialty designed to provide primary healthcare to individuals and their family members. With this type of medicine, a patient’s community is considered when focusing on disease prevention and the best way to support their health. 

Family medicine often encompasses both traditional forms of treatment paired with holistic therapies. By using an integrated approach, the Docere Integrated Medicine team supports every individual’s unique needs while uplifting the whole family in the process.

What is the difference between family medicine and integrated medicine?

One of the most significant differences between family and integrated medicine is that family medicine considers community influence when treating an individual. Family medicine contextualizes your social environment and how it impacts your health. Additionally, family medicine centers treatment around both adults and children.

With the rise of pediatric care as its own specialty, some considerations are lost. Rather than framing treatment with only the individual in mind, family medicine considers the entire family unit.

What conditions does family medicine treat?

Family medicine treats a large variety of ailments. Acute and chronic disease states, preexisting conditions, and social behaviors, family medicine is a specialty that can treat any illness. The practice of family medicine and the range of conditions it can treat is no different from modern internal practice.

Why is family medicine important?

In today’s world, there is a greater focus on individual illness and treatment. Much of the world is interconnected, greatly impacting how you live your daily life. By considering your health with a community-focused mentality, you can address it while uplifting those around you. A healthy community makes for a healthy individual. 

Additionally, because individualized care is more popularized, there is a shortage of practitioners  focusing on family medicine and relevant treatments. The experts at Docere Integrated Medicine use both individual treatment and family medicine practice to support you and your community.

Family medicine is an integrated approach that can support you and your entire family’s health. To schedule an appointment with the friendly experts at Docere Integrated Medicine to learn more, call the office or request an appointment through the online portal.
