Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is an area of medical practice focused on treating all members of the family. Some practitioners focus on specific issues like gynecology, pediatrics, or geriatric care. Family medicine practitioners are trained in all of these areas and can deliver top-quality health services to all members of your family, regardless of age or sex. 

Preventive health is a cornerstone of family medicine. These visits establish your personal health baseline and track changes over time. Preventive health visits can ensure you reach and maintain optimal health and can even stave off serious disease. 

Many people value family health for the convenience of seeing one trusted practitioner for all of the family’s health needs. This can save time, money, and frustration as opposed to scheduling and attending appointments at multiple practices across town. 

What kinds of services are available through family medicine?

Family medicine offers the same health services you could receive through a combination of other health visits. Preventive care is the starting point and ensures you get the screenings and health guidance you need to thrive. 

If you have chronic health conditions, those can be managed through family medicine visits. Some examples of conditions treated at Nashville Health Pro include:

  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension, or high blood pressure
  • Thyroid issues
  • High cholesterol
  • COPD
  • Heart disease

The practice can help you find the source of fatigue, fight off an infection, or simply boost overall health. In-house tools include COVID-19 testing, spirometry, injections, and breathing treatments.

Why see a health professional if I am not sick?

Far too many people only see a health professional once a serious illness or injury arises. This approach fails to take advantage of all that preventive health has to offer. 

Over time, working with a skilled health professional allows you to build a trusting relationship with your health team. All the practitioners at Nashville Health Pro view their role as your partner in your personal health journey. They are here to advise you on how to take control of your own health and wellness and attain the highest possible quality of life. 

No one is at their best when they are sick or injured. By establishing a trusting bond with your practitioner during preventive health visits, you have a great foundation if an urgent health need arises. This is especially important for kids, who often form their impressions about health and health care professionals at an early age. 

If you’re searching for an outstanding care team to deliver family health services for you or your loved ones, schedule a time to come in and meet the Nashville Health Pro team. Booking a visit takes just moments online or over the phone, so don’t delay.
