Family Medicine Q & A
What is family medicine?
Family medicine is frequently referred to as a general practice. Family medicine doctors provide comprehensive care to all members of your family, regardless of age.
You may visit a family medicine doctor for:
- Annual wellness checks
- Minor illnesses
- General health concerns
- Chronic issues like high blood pressure
- Immunizations to prevent disease and illnesses
In general, family doctors like those at Pandya Medical Center are your first stop for all your medical needs and to ensure you and your family stay healthy. If you have a health concern that requires specialized treatment, your family doctor can also coordinate care for you to see a specialist.
Why do I need a primary care physician?
Seeing the same physician on a regular basis supports your comprehensive health care needs. The physicians at Pandya Medical Center offer annual check-ups as well as care when you fall ill with a condition such as the flu, a stomach virus, a skin rash, or other issues that need immediate care. They can also support your health and medication decisions when it comes to chronic issues such as diabetes or heart disease.
When you regularly see a physician, you develop a relationship. Your doctor at Pandya Medical Center understands your long-term medical history, schedules, concerns, and health goals. They can then offer personalized care to meet your needs.

What are the benefits of regular check-ups with my physician?
Regular check-ups help you maintain a relationship with your physician. A yearly visit allows them to update any changes in your health or medications.
Plus, an annual visit involves simple screening tests – such as blood pressure and weight – that can indicate alterations in your health status. By catching issues early, you ward off serious complications that can negatively affect your quality of life.
As you get older, your physician can also ensure you’re getting all of the routine screenings you need to maintain a high quality of life and health. These include tests such as:
- Glucose monitoring
- Cholesterol screenings
They keep all your records in one place for easy access and review.
