A lasting relationship
Regular visits with your family medicine provider are beneficial for your health and wellness. You should develop a special relationship with your provider that will allow them to detect patterns in your health and suggest lifestyle changes to help prevent further complications. They can also uncover health issues, that if left untreated, could lead to serious complications. And if you should ever need specialized care, they will help guide you towards specialized physicians that will best suit your needs. The bond that you create with your family medicine provider will be one of the strongest relationships you maintain.
