What is Family Practice?

Family practice is all about developing a long-term relationship with a physician who knows your medical history and can watch out for you.

Where emergency care and specialists can be very important, your family physician watches for signals of changing health, conflicting prescriptions, and even mental and behavioral changes that may be cause for concern.

Family physicians are experienced in working with men and women of all ages, as well as infants and children. We offer the highest standards of medical care and stay on the cutting edge of medicine with continuing education and periodic re-certifications.

Family Practice Areas of Care Include:

  • Care for every day aches and pains, sprains, bumps, and bruises
  • Chronic conditions, from diabetes to asthma
  • Coughs, colds, and sore throats
  • High blood pressure and heart disease
  • Minor surgical procedures
  • Bone and joint care, including X-rays
  • Rashes and insect bites
  • Burns and broken bones
  • Urinary problems
  • Reproductive counseling and family planning

Most of all, family practice is about preventative care. Our goal is to help keep you well so that ER visits, surgeries, and hospital admissions are less frequent and you have more time, and better health, to spend with your family and friends.

The evidence is clear, family medicine helps people live better, longer, healthier lives. At Leonida Family Practice, we hope you’ll “Let Our Family Care for Yours.” We look forward to meeting you soon. Call us today at 724-547-4565.
