Affinia Healthcare’s Family Medicine clinicians provide continuing, comprehensive health care for the individual as well as the family. It is a specialty that integrates the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences. Family Medicine clinicians treat all ages, both men and women, each organ system, and every disease entity.
Affinia Healthcare’s family physicians possess unique attitudes, skills, and knowledge which qualify them to provide continuing and comprehensive medical care, health maintenance and preventive services to each member of the family regardless of sex, age, or type of problem, be it biological, behavioral, or social.
These specialists, because of their background and interactions with the family, are best qualified to serve as each patient’s advocate in all health-related matters, including the appropriate use of consultants, health services, and community resources.
The American Academy of Family Physicians believes that everyone should have a personal medical home that serves as the focal point through which all individuals – regardless of age, sex, race, or socioeconomic status – receive acute, chronic and preventive medical services. Through an on-going relationship with a family physician in their medical home, patients can be assured of care that is not only accessible but also accountable, comprehensive, integrated, patient-centered, safe, scientifically valid, and satisfying to both patients and their physicians.
