Family Medicine Q&A

What is family medicine?

A family medicine practice treats both children and adults, from newborns to the elderly. The providers have training in all your bodily systems, instead of specializing in one, and can thus offer comprehensive care.

What type of services does a family medicine practice offer?

Family medicine services at Stoneleigh Medical Group are all-encompassing. Your entire family can rely on the practitioners to help with issues such as:

  • Cold and flu
  • Headaches
  • Allergies
  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Fatigue
  • Joint pain
  • COVID-19
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Hormone imbalances 
  • Hypertension

A family medicine office is your first line of treatment for any medical complaint. Plus, the providers at Stoneleigh Medical Group offer preventive care, such as annual exams, regular vaccinations, and cancer screenings, to help you maintain good health for the long term. 

What are the benefits of visiting a family medicine practice?

Because the providers treat all members of your family in one place, you benefit from the convenience of not having to make multiple trips to various offices. This saves you time calling around to arrange appointments and shuttling kids or elderly relatives to various doctors. 

The providers at Stoneleigh Medical Group can also get to know your entire family and serve as a friendly, welcoming place. They observe specific conditions or concerns that run in your family, so they know what to look for when it comes to your health. 

How often should I see a family medicine provider?

Yearly visits to a family medicine provider are appropriate for most school-age children and through late adulthood. 

These visits include annual exams, blood pressure screenings, vaccinations, and other reviews of your health to ensure you’re on a path to good health. Infants and toddlers come in more often to make sure they’re growing and developing as they should.

If you have a chronic disease, like arthritis or diabetes, you may need more frequent visits to keep tabs on your treatment plan and its effectiveness in managing your illness. 

The providers at Stoneleigh Medical Group are also available for acute needs, like an unusual rash or high fever. They know your medical history, so they’re able to provide the very best urgent care for your condition and health status.
