Good Samaritan Clinic
CHI Health Good Samaritan Clinic - Family Medicine
Family Medicine practitioners provide continuing, comprehensive health care for individual family members of both genders and all ages. By placing special attention on the family as a group, the Family Medicine practitioner provides more integrated care to all patients within a family.
Family Medicine practitioners emphasize disease prevention and wellness by:
- Recommending preventive tests
- Coaching patients to change health behaviors so they don't develop the conditions they're at risk for
- Monitoring chronic conditions to prevent further complications
When a referral to a specialist is necessary, the Family Medicine practitioner collaborates with the specialist, coordinating the patient's healthcare and serving as the patient's advocate in all care settings.
