Family Medicine

Family medicine physicians are unique in their focus on the family as a unit and how family interactions affect health. If you’re looking for care that considers your entire family’s health when caring for any one family member, we invite you to partner with a MedStar Health family medicine physician.

MedStar family medicine physicians deliver a range of services to all members of the family—and always with your specific needs and history in mind. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventive care. This includes routine checkups, health risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized healthy lifestyle counseling.

Like an internist or primary care physician, MedStar family medicine physicians also manage chronic illness and regularly coordinate care provided by specialists. MedStar family physicians are trained in a variety of areas, including adult medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, orthopedics, gynecology, obstetrics, office surgery, behavioral health, and sex and family counseling.

Services we offer include:

  • Preventive Health: well-child care, adult physicals, geriatric assessments, well-woman exams, contraceptive maintenance, school physicals, weight-loss guidance
  • Chronic Disease Management: high blood pressure, acne, diabetes, hypothyroidism, depression, anxiety, allergies, asthma, complex disabilities
  • Acute Care: injuries (sprains, car accidents, burns, etc.), illnesses (sore throats, coughs, STDs, headaches, etc.)
  • Procedures: skin removals, mole biopsy, laceration repair, colposcopy
