The scope of family medicine encompasses all ages, sexes, each organ system and every disease entity.
Family medicine physicians provide comprehensive adult and pediatric care for patients of all ages through a variety of primary care, preventive health and clinical services. As medical challenges arise, Mercy Health Physician Partners family physicians work with a team of specialists, providing patients a comprehensive range of services and a coordinated approach to care.
Mercy Health Physician Partners family physicians work closely with patients to prevent disease and offer them a long and healthy life. Healthy lifestyle, exercise and weight control are three of the biggest points we stress to our patients. For those with a family or personal history of chronic disease, we take specific measures to ensure that they are being monitored and that their disease is being managed effectively. We do this with regular Health Maintenance Exams and by keeping up with what’s going on in their lives, so we can suggest small changes that will ensure good health.
