Family Medicine Clinic Q & A

What is family medicine?

Looking for a new physician can be a confusing process. Some doctors call themselves internal medicine physicians. Others refer to themselves as family medicine practitioners. You might wonder if there's a difference.

In general, doctors who specialize in internal medicine care for adults, while family practitioners serve adults and children. With a family medicine doctor, your whole family can receive care from the same provider. These doctors are often ideal providers for parents of young children.

What does a family medicine doctor do?

Family practitioners do a little bit of everything. They provide a variety of preventive care services to keep your family healthy. Your provider does valuable health screenings to diagnose problems early on. They also take care of you when you’re sick or injured.

Sellwood Medical Clinic providers offer a wide range of services, including:

  • Physical exams for adults
  • Well-child visits
  • Sick visits
  • Screenings and routine tests
  • Immunizations
  • Referrals to specialists

Your provider does regular checkups to keep you in good health. They also provide your children with top-notch care. 

Your child can receive important screenings, vaccines, and sports physicals. And if anyone in your family gets sick, your provider delivers the care they need to feel better.

How often should I see my doctor?

All adults should receive annual physical exams. Children over 3 need yearly exams as well. But babies and toddlers need to see the doctor more frequently. Your provider can help you schedule visits for every member of your family.

If you're not feeling well, don't hesitate to call the office. There's no need to wait until your next exam. The Sellwood Medical Clinic team is always ready to provide care.

What happens if I need specialized care?
