Family Medicine

Our compassionate, board-certified family practitioners know and understand the health issues of every member of your family.

Superior Care for the Entire Family

Family practitioners at Holy Spirit Health System are trained to treat every member of the family, from birth through the older years, and to coordinate the family’s care. Their training emphasizes wellness and preventative medicine. They take a holistic approach to medicine — looking at your health in light of your unique professional, family, community and environmental issues. Family physicians are able to care for all members of the family, of any sex, age or health status.

Choosing a Family Practitioner as Your Primary Care Physician

Primary care physicians (PCPs) are doctors who are family practitioners, pediatricians or internists. Having a PCP who knows you, your family, and your unique hereditary and environmental factors helps you get more complete care.

If the need for specialty care arises, your primary care doctor can refer you to trusted specialists and monitor your specialty care. This helps eliminate duplicate testing and unnecessary procedures. Holy Spirit Health System prides itself on a seamless continuum of care throughout all our practices. If you wish, you can choose a family practitioner as the primary care physician for your entire family.
