Family Medicine is a division of primary care that provides continuing and comprehensive care for the individual and family across all ages, genders, diseases, and parts of the body.
A Family Physician, such as Dr. Adolfo Narvaez, is trained to diagnose and treat a broad range of childhood illnesses from minor health problems to serious diseases. A typical day may include appointments with sick children, conducting physicals to assess overall health, prescribing medicine, discussing treatment options with families, coordinating with other medical professionals for diagnosis, dealing with emergencies, and educating patients about their illness and how to assist in the treatment process.
Some Family Physicians like Dr. Adolfo Narvaez work in a solo private practice, dedicating themselves entirely to providing personalized care in the context of the family and the community, emphasizing disease prevention and health promotion.
