Family medicine is a specialty that focuses on comprehensive primary care of people of all ages. Having a long-lasting relationship with a family doctor who knows your history is greatly beneficial. A family physician can diagnose and treat all types of diseases, and if necessary, refer you to a specialist. In treating patients a family physician can educate them on diabetes, obesity, immunizations, pregnancy, allergies, children's health, mental health, men's and women's health and senior's health.

A vaccine provides immunity to a disease, typically by containing ingredients that resemble a disease-causing microorganism. A vaccine is made of small amounts of weak or dead germs that cause the disease being vaccinated against, which stimulates your body to recognize the germs as foreign. This allows the immune system to recognize and destroy these microorganisms later.

Obesity is an incredibly common health condition that occurs when a person has accumulated so much body fat that it can negatively affect their health. According to studies, nearly 30% of people worldwide are overweight or obese – it’s become an epidemic.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in North America. Heart disease refers to many conditions that affect the heart, including coronary artery disease, heart valve disease, heart attack, heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias) and more.

Seniors will account for 22 percent of the population by 2050. Many seniors live active and healthy lives, but as we age, our health needs change. These changes depend on different factors, such as your genetics (family history) and lifestyle modifications.

Good mental health is also related to physical health. Mental health problems in seniors often relate to disability, cognitive or sensory impairments, mobility issues, chronic pain and death of family members or friends. Caring for your mental health – whether it’s having a support system in place, seeing a psychologist or taking antidepressants – is as important as your physical health. As you age, you may need to schedule more visits with your primary healthcare provider. Schedule a yearly visit with your doctor and discuss necessary screenings as needed.
