At The Jackson Clinic, our family medicine team is here to help you manage your health. Our team of providers can take care of the general health needs of everyone in your family, from newborns to senior citizens.
The specialty of the family medicine provider
The foundation of family medicine is the personal relationship between patient and provider. Unlike other specialties that focus on a specific organ or disease, family medicine provides care for a social unit: the family.
Family medicine specialists provide:
- Annual physicals
- Personal counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle
- Routine check-ups
- Screening tests
In addition to routine care, our family medicine providers can also help adults and children with chronic medical conditions, such as asthma or heart disease or arthritis. They can also help with acute problems, including infections. Whether you're a child with asthma, an adult with diabetes or a senior with high blood pressure, our family medicine specialists can provide you with ongoing, personal care.
