What is Family Medicine?

The family medicine professional is the only physician that can help to manage all of your healthcare and wellbeing needs throughout your life. This all-encompassing field provides comprehensive, continuous healthcare in an attempt to guarantee the wellbeing and longevity of patients.

Family physicians also specialize in preventive care. Screening and prevention are two of the keys to protect the patient’s wellbeing over time. In addition, screening can be the only way to discover a serious medical condition earlier to allow intervention. Early diagnosis will often make the difference between life and death, which is why the importance of preventive family medicine should never be underestimated.

A family doctor will also address a long-term or a chronic health condition that you have been struggling with assisting with choices, and guiding to appropriate specialty care.
This physician is responsible for establishing a long-lasting relationship with you and understanding the factors and the problems that contribute to your chronic conditions. This knowledge of your medical history will often assist for the most adequate course of action.

Whether you are looking for full recovery options or chronic condition management, an experienced family doctor will be the right healthcare professional to guide you.

What is an Osteopathic Physician, a DO?

Osteopathic Medicine was founded in the 1800s by a man named Dr Andrew Taylor Still. It was philosophy based, needing a special group of trained physicians that treated the whole body, looked at all parts together not just an area at a time. Spinal manipulation and palpatory diagnosis are a part of this. Dr Martin attended PCOM the second medical school in the nation to offer nutrition courses for medicine, the first being Harvard.

Osteopathic Medicine today graduates 20% of all new doctors, from 30 medical schools compared to 131 allopathic or MD schools. Over 76,000 licensed physicians are DOs most in primary care but they are seen in every specialty across the United States. Dr Martin is proud to bring this experience to her new office.
