Family medicine is the specialty that provides primary care to patients of all ages. As the name suggests, family physicians are able to treat each member of the family, from young children to elderly adults. They have received training that encompasses both broad and narrow specialties, including areas such as pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, psychiatry, neurology, and community medicine. This training means they can help their patients with most common health issues, and makes them qualified to provide a variety of services such as diagnosing and treating diseases, managing chronic conditions, and coordinating any specialty care that their patients may need. Family physicians also play a major role in preventative care, as they order diagnostic tests and screenings, and educate their patients on healthy lifestyle practices.
At BASS Medical Group, our board-certified family physicians provide high-quality care to families and communities all over the San Francisco Bay Area. Their practices are patient-centered, and they are committed to building long-lasting relationships with both individuals and entire families. As primary care providers, their expertise and knowledge means they can adapt their services to you and your family’s unique needs. Their overall goals are to keep their patients as healthy as possible, care for them when they are sick, and lead them in the right direction should they need specialty care. The long-standing relationship between doctor and patient is one of the foundations of family medicine, and our physicians deeply value this as it allows them to provide better, more personal care. Our family physicians are there to be your primary point of contact with the medical world, as a friendly face who can guide you through its complexities. Ask them your questions, share with them your concerns, and they will happily offer recommendations and advice.
Every day, our family physicians collaborate with skilled medical professionals and staff to ensure their patients are getting the best care. They focus on treating the whole patient using a variety of approaches and techniques, and they understand that not all health solutions are medical. This comprehensive approach, coupled with a strong patient-physician relationship, creates what is called a “medical home”. A medical home means that your family physician and their support staff are solely focused on providing you with coordinated, quality care that emphasizes your needs and offers you the best outcomes. As they always have your best interest in mind, you can trust you are in good hands when you choose a BASS Medical Group family physician.
