What is Local Family Physician

A local family physician is a doctor who treats patients of all ages: newborns, infants, toddlers, children, adolescents, teenagers, women, men and senior citizens. A local family doctor may perform annual exams, screening tests such as prostate cancer screening or breast cancer screening, give immunizations to children and adults, prescribe medications for various types of disorders, diseases and infections, treat injuries that don’t require emergency care and refer patients to specialists as needed. For example, if you have heart disease, you will probably also work with a local cardiologist. If you have diabetes, you will probably also work with a local endocrinologist.

People with type 1 or type 2 diabetes will need to see their local family physician and/or endocrinologist regularly in order to prevent diabetes-related complications such as diabetic neuropathy, diabetic retinopathy and kidney problems. If you have diabetes, it’s important to also see a local ophthalmologist regularly, as you’re at a higher risk of developing eye conditions such as glaucoma, retinal detachment and cataracts if blood sugar is poorly controlled. If you’d like more information about how a local family physician can help you manage your family’s health, talk to your local healthcare provider.

Often seeing your local family Physician is a great starting place for referrals to your local Massage Therapist or your local chiropractor to help with massage and skeletal adjustments. A local Physiotherapist or local athletic trainer can help with strength and bruised muscles. Acupuncture is often recommended for chronic pain in association with your local physiotherapist
