Family Practice Medicine
What is family medicine?
Family medicine is a convenient care option for families. Family medicine providers are primary care physicians that look after the needs of an entire family. Patients of all ages, including children, teenagers, and the elderly, are seen by the same provider.
Family medicine not only makes it easier to schedule your medical needs, but also allows your doctor to establish trusting relationships with you and your family. Family-centered care makes it easier for your entire family to access essential medical services when they need them most.
What services does a family practice provide?
Family medicine addresses a broad spectrum of needs. At Heal 360, the practice provides a number of essential health services, with no appointment necessary. This walk-in policy allows you and your family to address both your primary and urgent care needs on your own time.
Some of the services provided include:
- Annual exams
- Chronic disease management

Family medicine is the ideal resource for families looking to address their overall health. With a family practice, you give your child the opportunity to grow with their physician. Family medicine providers also play an important role in preventive medicine, helping you and your loved ones manage your risks for certain illnesses and conditions.
What is health planning?
