Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I visit my family doctor even if I am in good health?

Seeing your physician once a year for a physical exam is an excellent way to manage your health. Many health insurances or corporate plans cover an annual physical as preventive care, and some plans cover preventive care services as well. 

Is a General Physician like a Family Physician? Do I need one?

It is important to have a primary care physician. They get to know you, your history, and your family health history. Building a long-term relationship with your primary care physician has major health benefits over your lifetime, such as lower overall health costs, a decrease in hospital and ER visits, and better management of chronic diseases. 


What is the difference between General Medicine and Internal Medicine?

Internal Medicine – Internal medicine physicians typically treat adults and specialize in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of disease and chronic conditions. General Practice – General Practice physicians are like family practice physicians and can treat patients of any gender or age.
