Family Medicine

Family medicine doctors are your one-stop provider for health care. The practice of family medicine is different from internal medicine and pediatrics in that family medicine doctors are trained to care for people of all ages. Many people see their family medicine doctors for their entire lives.

When you have a specific health issue, your family medicine doctor helps connect you to the right specialist. They manage your care before, during, and after any specialty appointment to make sure you get the care you need.

What can a Family Medicine doctor do?

Doctors who practice family medicine provide a wide range of services for you and your whole family. Family medicine doctors have additional training in such specialty areas as obstetrics and gynecology, orthopedics, dermatology, behavioral medicine and pediatrics. Although, some Henry Ford family medicine doctors do not see pediatric patients younger than 5 years.
