Family medicine is an important medical specialty. Family health care practitioners like Dr. C Williams provide care for people in all stages of life, from children, teenagers, adults to seniors. It is a medical specialty which provides continuous health care for family individuals of all ages, sexes, diseases and body parts.
This primary care is based on the knowledge of a patient’s lifestyle, family and community, and focuses on disease prevention and health promotion. Family physicians in the U.S. hold either an M.D. or a D.O. degree. The term “family medicine” is common in Canada, Europe and Asia, but it is also known as “general medicine” or “general practice.”
The World Organization of Family Doctors states that the goal of family medicine is to provide personal, inclusive and continuous care of an individual in the family and community context.
