Family Primary Care

What is Family Primary Care

Family primary care is a method of health care focused on meeting the full scope of routine health needs for people of all ages. All medical practitioners receive extensive training in primary care. Those who choose to build their careers in this practice area seek additional training and education. 

Your primary care practitioner can meet most of your routine health needs. Services include infant care, pediatric health services, adult medicine, and geriatric care. If you ever need to see a specialist, your primary care provider helps you find the right practitioner for your needs and communicates with your extended care team throughout your treatment.  

What are some benefits of family primary care?

Convenience is a primary benefit of choosing family primary care. When you can have all of the members of your household work with the same 4th Trimester Place practitioner, you rest assured that your family is in good hands. 

Booking preventive care visits are simplified, and you can even have multiple family members seen on the same day. Recordkeeping is also easier when the entire family’s medical records are in one place and share the same format. If you ever need to relocate or find a new practitioner, sending everyone’s records takes just moments.

Another benefit of family primary care is the depth of care available from a practitioner who not only gets to know you as a distinct individual but also knows you within the context of your family unit. This helps clinicians craft customized care plans and ensure that everyone in your household gets the support they need to thrive.  

What kinds of services are available within family primary care?

Preventive medicine is a strong area of focus, including comprehensive physical exams, blood draws, sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing, and other screening tools. 

Diabetes prevention and obesity prevention services are available, and close monitoring helps you avoid many chronic health conditions. Preparation for pregnancy and beyond are also key aspects of family medicine care.

When illness or injuries arise, acute care visits (sick visits) focus on diagnosing the cause of your symptoms and getting you on a fast track toward relief. Those with one or more types of chronic disease may rely on services like blood pressure management, prescription refills, and more.
