The specialty of Family physician
The family physician functions as the patient's means of entry into the health care system and as the physician of first contact in most situations is in a unique position to form a bond with the patient. The family physician's care is both personal and comprehensive and not limited by age, sex, organ system or type of problem. This care is based on knowledge of the patient in the context of the family and the community, emphasizing disease prevention and health promotion.
The family physician serves as the patient’s advocate in dealing with other medical professionals. When a referral is indicated, the family physician refers the patient to other specialists or caregivers but remains the coordinator of the patient’s health care.
