Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

A practice of medicine involving a multi-generational approach, family medicine cares for each member as an individual. In traditional medicine, a pediatrician cares for children while a general physician sees adults. A family medicine physician, however, has training in many different disciplines and can treat children and adults.

As a family medicine practitioner, Dr. Rogers has clinical training in areas like pediatrics, internal medicine, women’s health, and more. She can approach your health and your family’s health from an integrated perspective, offering solutions benefitting you and the entire family.

What’s my appointment like?  

Your appointment with one of our medical providers can cover a wide range of issues, depending on your needs. If it’s your first visit, you meet with her for an initial consultation to discuss your health history, your goals, and any symptoms you may be experiencing.

We can then perform routine tests and physical exams and give you a treatment plan aligned with your needs. If we feel you need a specialist we will get you set up with a referral with a trusted medical provider. 

Utilizing a holistic approach to care, the Rogers Medical team works as a whole to make sure you receive the best possible care.

What are the benefits of family medicine?

The belief that underlies family medicine is that the structure, health, and strength of the family as a unit significantly influences individual health. Different factors that affect each member of the family come into play, such as one person’s illness, stressful life changes, stress levels, and more.

By addressing the family as a complex system of individuals that make up a whole, the benefits are:

  • More focused care considering all areas of your physical, mental, and emotional health
  • A strong, life-long relationship with your physician supporting you and your family
  • Support through health challenges affecting all family members
  • Convenience of different types of care from one physician
