Family Medicine physicians specialize in caring for the physical, mental and emotional well-being of their patients and their families. They are trained to care for all ages, from children ages 5 to senior adults. Because family practitioners are trained to treat the whole person, these specialists diagnose and treat the full range of problems people bring to their doctors. In most cases, a referral from a family doctor is not necessary to schedule an appointment with a Kelsey-Seybold specialist, but the family doctor is an important part of the multispecialty team. The family doctor coordinates care with specialty physicians and other members of a patient’s care team.
