What Is Family Medicine?
This area of medicine is dedicated to providing comprehensive healthcare on a personalized basis to patients from birth through their later years. Family medicine doctors are often referred to as primary care physicians and are the first ones patients call for wellness check-ups or when symptoms arise. At Vanguard Medical Group, our highly qualified family medicine doctors are committed to developing strong relationships with each patient, getting to know their lifestyle, family history, fitness levels, and any health concerns they may have, including complex medical cases and mental and behavioral issues.
