Family Medicine Q&A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is an area of medical practice focused on providing comprehensive health care to all members of a family, regardless of their ages. Family medicine practitioners train to deliver top-quality care to individuals of all ages, from infancy to late adulthood.

What makes a family practice unique is the emphasis on the doctor-patient relationship. Because family medicine practitioners work with a wide range of ages, they typically see their patients for years, even decades, in many cases.

That’s why the team at CPI Physicians strives to build strong, healthy relationships with everyone who comes through the door. They view their role as your partner in reaching and maintaining your best possible health and wellness.

Which types of services do family medicine physicians offer?

CPI Physicians offers a broad range of services and customizes care based on the specific needs of you and your loved ones. Comprehensive annual physical exams are the foundation of excellent health and should be part of your family’s ongoing health management plans.

Additional services include:

  • Immunizations (vaccines)
  • Blood pressure screenings
  • Diabetes screenings
  • Sports, school, and employment physicals
  • Heart disease screenings
  • Allergy testing
  • Chronic and acute health care
  • Wellness evaluations
  • Pediatric care
  • Geriatric care
  • Basic well-woman care

CPI Physicians draw and process blood testing in their office, so you don’t have to worry about scheduling additional appointments or waiting long for results.

What is the difference between acute and chronic health care?

Acute health needs are issues that arise relatively quickly and require prompt medical attention. Examples include cold and flu symptoms, sports injuries, and other mild-to-moderate musculoskeletal injuries, urinary tract infections, fever, and others.

Treating acute health needs involves reaching a swift and accurate diagnosis and charting an appropriate treatment plan. You’ll receive all the details needed to make informed decisions about your care or the care of your children.

Chronic health problems often develop slowly but can have serious detrimental effects on your overall health and wellness. Examples include asthma, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and kidney disease.

Treating chronic health needs involves a thorough diagnostic process to determine the severity of your condition, and creating a customized, long-term care plan to address symptoms and improve your general health. Lifestyle changes are often part of chronic disease management.

Working with a family medicine practitioner ensures you and your loved ones receive the care you need from a physician who knows you and understands your long-term health needs and goals. 

It’s also a more efficient way to meet those needs, as scheduling and recordkeeping are simplified when all members of your family rely on the team at CPI Physicians
