Our OSU Family Medicine physicians are dedicated to treating the whole person. Unlike other specialties that are limited to a particular organ or disease, family medicine physicians are qualified to treat most ailments and provide comprehensive health care for people of all ages– from newborns to seniors. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family physicians also manage chronic illness, often coordinating care provided by other subspecialists. From heart disease, stroke and hypertension, to diabetes, cancer, and asthma, family physicians provide ongoing, personal care for the nation’s most serious health problems.
