Family Medicine Q&A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is a type of primary care that manages your entire family’s health needs. Unlike other medical specialties, family medicine practitioners can diagnose and treat almost any disease.

They also manage general health and wellness, focusing on health promotion and disease prevention. 

A.L.M.S Community Health Center is a primary care practice aiming to provide affordable and accessible care to all, especially their underserved communities. The team includes family medicine practitioners who care for all ages (from newborns to older adults).

What are the benefits of family medicine?

Most health issues tend to run in families. When you have a provider that takes care of you, your children, and your parents, they already know what health issues you’re at greater risk of developing. This gives them the unique ability to create individualized care plans that benefit your and your family’s health.

A.L.M.S Community Health Center is a one-stop-shop health center, providing all the medical services you need at one location. This also saves you time and expenses.
