Family Medicine

Family medicine is a branch of primary care that provides prevention, diagnosis, and treatment for people of all ages, from children to senior citizens.

What is family medicine?

Family medicine practitioners, like those at Family Medical Center, work with people of all ages to diagnose, treat, and prevent common illnesses. They also provide a range of preventive health services, such as physical exams, STD testing, hormone replacement therapy, and laboratory tests.

We care for people from all walks of life and knows as much about pediatrics as geriatrics. This knowledge and expertise means you and your entire family can access the preventive and general health services you need all under one roof, as well as care for chronic diseases.

What services does family medicine include?

Fowler Family Medical offers an array of family medicine services, including:

If you’re a healthy adult, you may only need to visit the doctor once a year for an annual wellness exam. We can also update your immunizations, treat acute or chronic ailments, and provide lifestyle counseling to improve your health and quality of life. The practice also provides gender-specific health services; women can access well-woman exams and Pap tests, while men can check-in on their testosterone levels and prostate health.
Children and adolescents grow rapidly, which also makes them susceptible to certain ailments and injuries. We provide an array of pediatric medical services, including wellness exams, sports physicals, vaccinations, and treatment for both acute and chronic illnesses.
Fowler Family Medicine regularly includes laboratory testing in their physical and preventive exams. Patients can access complete blood counts (CBC), thyroid panels, cholesterol tests, and more.
We can diagnose and treat most acute and chronic illnesses. However, if your provider determines you have a more serious condition that might benefit from personalized care, they can refer you to a medical specialist in the area.
