Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is a general medical practice devoted to treating the whole person. Family medicine includes attending to both an individual’s physical needs and their psychological needs. At San Gabriel Family Medicine, the team of medical professionals ensures that you and your family get the care you need to thrive and live the highest quality life possible.

What types of care can I get from a family doctor?

Family physicians receive extensive training in all aspects of medicine. Some specialties they’re skilled in are:

  • Pediatrics
  • Geriatrics
  • Gynecology
  • Obstetrics
  • Psychiatry
  • Neurology
  • Surgery

San Gabriel Family Medicine also offers emergency care, so you and your family can avoid costly and time-consuming emergency-room visits. Walk in or call during office hours, and the team works hard to ensure that you’re seen within 20 minutes. After office hours, reach your on-call doctor by phoning 512-986-8858.

What is the advantage to family medicine?

The medical world is increasingly fragmented with specialists who tend to one type of illness or injury at a time. Family medicine integrates your medical care, so that you always have at least one member of your health team who understands all aspects of the medical or psychological challenges you face. Your family physician coordinates your care with other specialists you work with and may refer you to a specialist if you have a complex condition.

Family medicine is also more personalized than specialty care. The doctors and other medical professionals take time to get to know you and each family member, answer all of your questions, and address your concerns. 

What services are part of family medicine?

The doctors and medical professionals at San Gabriel Family Medicine provide basic primary care as well as some types of specialized care. At a single, welcoming facility, you and your family have access to:

  • Annual physical exams
  • School or sports exams
  • Screenings and blood tests
  • Immunizations
  • Diagnosis and treatment of illness
  • Treatment for acute injuries
  • Care for chronic conditions
  • On-site allergy tests and treatments
  • Psychological counseling
  • Medically supervised weight loss

Each member of your family should visit San Gabriel Family Medicine at least once a year for a comprehensive physical exam and any needed immunizations. A yearly visit also helps you and your doctor build a trusting relationship, so that you can come to them whenever you have a question or concern about your health. Because the team knows that you need answers about your health as soon as possible, they offer an on-site laboratory for quick and accurate results.
