Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is the primary care facility for your health - the place you go when you feel sick or have a medical problem. Family medicine practitioners like Dr. Mullane undergo extensive training in a broad range of medical topics rather than choosing to specialize in one field. 

Some of the areas family medicine practitioners have expertise in include:

  • Pediatrics
  • Obstetrics and gynecology
  • Internal medicine
  • Psychiatry and neurology
  • Community medicine 
  • Geriatrics
  • Ophthalmology
  • Orthopedics
  • Otolaryngology (ENT)
  • Urology

Family medicine is the first step in any health care journey. Dr. Mullane treats all members of your family, whatever their age. If he finds symptoms of a condition that needs specialized treatment, he can refer you to an appropriate practitioner.

What can family medicine practitioners treat?

Family medicine practitioners like Dr. Mullane have a substantial breadth of knowledge, which means they can provide comprehensive medical care. If you’re sick or have an injury and need urgent care, Dr. Mullane can often see you the same day, or he may be able to contact you by phone for advice in the interim. 

He can also assist you in managing long-term health issues and chronic conditions, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Depression

Dr. Mullane gives you as much time as you need during your sick visit or routine appointment and has several onsite services that can save you time and effort, including blood draws.

Can family medicine help prevent ill health?

One of Dr. Mullane’s main objectives is to help prevent ill health. Preventing disease is always better than experiencing a debilitating illness, and Dr. Mullane provides a range of services that aim to help you avoid being sick. These services include:

  • Routine check-ups
  • Well-woman visits
  • Health-risk assessments
  • Immunization programs
  • Screening tests

Leading a healthy lifestyle is critical in preventing illness and improving resilience to disease. Dr. Mullane can provide diet counseling to help you eat more healthily and lose excess weight. He can also advise you on the safest way to get fit, how to manage stress, and how to quit bad habits like smoking or drinking too much alcohol.
