Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is an area of medical specialty focused on providing the care individuals need throughout their lives. Family physicians are trained across a wide range of medical needs and attend ongoing educational opportunities to stay on top of advancements in health care. 

The team at Desert Wells Family Medicine offers care for:

  • Newborns/infants
  • Children/pediatrics
  • Teens/adolescents
  • Adults

Preventive health is an often overlooked aspect of family medicine. Health care should not just be about addressing symptoms as they arise. There are ways to enhance health and wellness and prevent disease from developing. 

During routine visits, your practitioner spends a portion of the appointment helping you find ways to live your best possible life.

What if I need to see a specialist?

There are circumstances, however, where you might need to work with a specialist. If so, your practitioner can help you find the right specialist for your needs. 

Desert Wells Family Medicine serves as your long-term medical home, but the team also works with specialists and hospitals when additional services are needed. 

While you are in specialty care, your family medicine team remains in communication with your extended health team to ensure continuity of care after treatment ends. They incorporate the details of your specialty care into your medical record. 

Over time, your medical record creates an in-depth picture of your health data and displays shifts and changes.
