What is family medicine?

Family medicine takes a holistic approach to treating both individual patients and their families. Family medicine practitioners use biological, clinical and behavioral sciences to treat patients of all ages and genders.

What is the difference between family medicine and internal medicine?

Family medicine and internal medicine doctors are both types of primary care providers. The biggest difference is that internal medicine doctors only treat adults. Family physicians have extensive training and are qualified to treat most health issues in patients of all ages.
