In the increasingly fragmented world of healthcare, one thing remains constant:family physicians are dedicated to treating the whole person. Family medicine's cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focusing on integrated care. Unlike other specialties that are limited to a particular organ or disease, family medicine integrates care for patiens of both genders and every age, and advocates for the patient in a complex healthcare system.
