Primary Care Providers
Family medicine is a medical specialty that provides comprehensive, coordinated, and continuous health care for individuals and families of all ages. As family medicine practitioners, we are committed to providing quality care with compassion and respect for patients in partnership with their health care team. In addition, we are trained to manage all types of conditions that affect the health, well-being, and daily living skills of individuals throughout the life span.
Our family medicine doctors treat patients with diseases or injuries related to:
- Cardiovascular disease (heart attack)
- Gastrointestinal disease (diarrhea)
- Infectious disease (tuberculosis)
- Pulmonary problems (asthma attacks)
- And many more!
Family medicine services are provided by a doctor who specializes in caring for the whole family. In addition to providing care and treatment for babies, infants, and children through adolescence, some family medicine doctors also offer specialized care to adolescents and young adults.
Some of the pediatric conditions that can be treated at a family medicine practice include:
- Ear Aches
- Runny nose
- Minor Scrapes
- And more
In addition to routine preventive care services such as immunizations, physical exams (including developmental screenings), vision checks, and other wellness assessments necessary for healthy growth from birth through adolescence, our team takes a proactive health approach to medicine. This way, we can prevent many of the common illnesses and symptoms of our younger patients.
Our family medicine doctors will help manage acute conditions, like colds and the flu, just as much as provide you the resources and support for longer-term ailments. That includes providing referrals to any specialists if needed, like an Orthopedic Surgeon for a broken bone.
If you have chronic health conditions, such as heart disease or diabetes, your family medicine physician can help manage those. We are proud to serve the growing medical needs of adults through their most active lives, especially in work-related injuries, athletic issues, weight management, preventative health, and more.
For the Elderly
The elderly are often in need of primary care. As they get older, they may be dealing with many medical issues and may require more frequent doctor visits. For example, some elderly patients take numerous medications to manage a variety of chronic conditions. These medications can interact with each other, resulting in dangerous side effects or harmful interactions that require careful monitoring by the physician.
Additionally, an older person’s ability to tolerate medications is often reduced because changes in the body’s metabolism occur as we age.
Our goal is to continuously improve the quality of life of our clients. That includes carefully educating and suggesting treatment plans for aging people who need additional support for daily activities.
Family medicine is the perfect choice for anyone who needs to see a doctor. Whether you need help with a sore throat or an ear infection, family medicine can help. It’s also great if you want someone to look after your whole family instead of just one person at a time.
If you’re looking for primary care providers specializing in all ages and stages of life (including children), give us a call today! EMDS is proud to offer the expertise and skills required to treat your entire family.
