What is family medicine?
Family medicine provides ongoing primary care and comprehensive medical evaluations to patients of all ages. Rather than focusing on a specific disease or body part, family medicine treats patients for their everyday ailments and healthcare needs.
Family physicians receive at least three more years of in-depth training after finishing medical school. This specialized training qualifies them to address health concerns covering adult and pediatric medicine as well as preventive and obstetrics care. As a result, a family physician is qualified to treat every member of your family.
What does family medicine entail?
Family practitioners treat a large spectrum of illnesses and conditions for every patient population, young and old. From addressing complaints like the common cold to providing health assessments like a sports physical, Dr. Hunt and his staff offer a wide variety of medical services.
They can also help with:
Nutrition and weight control
Stress and anger management
Anxiety and depression relief
Fertility testing and counseling

Dr. Hunt can help you prevent serious diseases from developing in the future. He can conduct routine health screens, ensure your family’s immunization schedule is up-to-date, or simply provide counseling on lifestyle changes to help you maintain your health.
Manage chronic conditions
Family medicine also focuses on managing chronic conditions like diabetes, asthma, and heart disease. Dr. Hunt can determine the treatment plan best for you and your lifestyle.
Visiting Dr. Hunt regularly might also allow him to spot an emerging condition early on. His familiarity with your medical records can help him recognize new or unusual symptoms.
Although family medicine focuses on the majority of health conditions, sometimes you may require special care. When that happens, Dr. Hunt can refer you to a specialist. They can consult with one another to determine the best treatment plan for you.
