Primary Care Q & A

What is a family doctor?

A family doctor is a trained clinician who diagnoses, prevents, and treats a wide variety of conditions in patients of all ages. Where other physicians specialize in one organ, system, or disease, family doctors can treat ailments that affect any part of the body.

Family doctors complete a three-year residency program after they graduate from medical school. During that residency, they receive training and instruction in many different specialties including obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, and geriatrics.

What services does a family doctor provide?

Family doctors ensure patients receive important medical screenings and health-risk assessments. They provide preventive care and lifestyle counseling, as well as treatment and management for acute and chronic diseases.

Dr. Kim can help every member of the family -- from infants to senior citizens -- diagnose and manage:

  • Allergy and sinus issues
  • Cuts, bruises, and sprains
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Rashes and skin problems
  • Warts and moles

He can also administer flu shots, perform annual checkups, and conduct physicals or sick visits.

Why should I choose a family doctor?
