Family Medicine Q&A

What are the advantages of family medicine?

As family medicine specialists, the providers at Desoto Family Care Clinic take care of every member of your family. They serve as primary care providers, which means they serve as the medical home you contact first whether you’re sick, suffer an injury, or need chronic disease management.

One of the benefits of family medicine, besides the convenience of bringing all your family to the same place, is that your provider gets to know you. As they build a personal connection, they can deliver truly individualized care.

Family medicine providers manage your care and serve as your advocate when you need medical treatment from specialists. They also deliver care if you’re in the hospital or other community-based facilities.

What services might I receive from a family medicine provider?

Your provider at Desoto Family Care Clinic offers comprehensive care for the full range of health care needs your family faces.

A few examples of the services available include:

  • Annual exams
  • Sports physicals
  • School physicals

What immunizations do family medicine providers offer?

Desoto Family Care Clinic provides the routine immunizations recommended for children and adults at every stage of life.

Vaccines administered to children and teens protect them from contagious diseases such as:

  • Measles
  • Mumps
  • Chickenpox
  • Whooping cough
  • Hepatitis
  • Tetanus
  • Polio
  • Pneumonia
  • Diphtheria
  • Blood infections
  • Ear infections
  • Bacterial meningitis
  • Seasonal flu

However, immunizations don’t stop once you reach adulthood. Adults still need flu shots and may also need protection from a new disease or a booster to improve their immune response. Some shots, such as the shingles and pneumococcal vaccines, are only given to adults.

What chronic diseases do family medicine providers manage?

Children and adults can develop chronic health conditions that persist throughout life. Desoto Family Care Clinic offers comprehensive and integrative care for conditions such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Arthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Chronic pain

Obesity may also be a chronic condition, as it involves lifelong hormonal and metabolic factors. Desoto Family Care Clinic offers weight management to help patients reach and maintain a healthy weight.
