What is a family doctor?
This medical professional is a kind of primary care physician that’s specialized in family medicine. A family doctor can provide first-level care for patients of any age, including children and seniors, and if a patient needs continual care for a chronic condition like diabetes, the family doctor can provide it too. Vaccinations, physical exams, referrals, and more can be provided. A family doctor can create a network with other medical professionals to provide you and your family with fully comprehensive care.
It’s good to have a family doctor since one can take care of your whole family, be a friend to your family, and easily identify any common health conditions that run in the family.
How often should I see a family doctor?
This is a good question. The answer depends on a few factors. For example, your age is a factor, and may be the main factor. Typically, patients over 50 years old will need to see a family doctor for a general checkup once a year, and patients under 50 should see a doctor once every three years at least. However, all that depends on other factors too, like a patient’s health and whether the patient is at risk for any health issues. You might also need to see the doctor if any health issue comes up at any point.
You should speak with a family doctor about how often you should go in for a visit. When you come see us here at Viva Health Centre, ask the doctor you see how often you and your loved ones should come in for a visit.
