Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

A family medicine physician is an expert in comprehensive, whole-body care. While a specialist focuses on one area, like the heart or nervous system, a family physician can diagnose and treat a variety of conditions anywhere in the body.

Family physicians have extensive training to prepare them for practicing family medicine and often complete residency programs in disciplines that include:

  • Internal medicine
  • Pediatrics
  • Geriatrics
  • Psychiatry and neurology
  • Obstetrics and gynecology
  • Emergency medicine

Your family physician follows your life cycle and provides continuous care as you grow older and your health care needs change. If you need specialized care, additional testing, or surgery, the doctor helps you find the right specialist.

What types of conditions can a family physician treat?

Dr. Posada, a board-certified family physician, is an expert in many common health concerns. He sees patients of all ages, genders, and races and helps them maintain their health throughout their lives. 

He performs yearly check-ups and physical exams. He treats acute conditions like the flu or sinus infections. Dr. Posada also helps patients manage ongoing health conditions, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Arthritis

A family physician is often the first doctor you see when you seek medical care. For diseases like cancer and heart disease, Dr. Posada helps patients find the best specialist for their needs. 

You visit your family doctor for annual check-ups and when you don’t feel good. You can develop a personal relationship with the doctor, which ensures you and your family receive quality care.
