Family Practice Q & A

What are the benefits of family practice?

A family practice houses physicians, nurses, and other medical professionals with training to care for patients of all ages — from infants to seniors. Because a family practice offers medical care for all age groups, it’s truly a one-stop-shop for all of your family’s medical needs.

Some of the benefits of becoming established with a family practice include:

  • Save time (no more traveling to different doctor’s offices)
  • Ability to track health trends and concerns among family members
  • Quick access to your entire family’s medical records at one practice

Plus, you may even be able to schedule back-to-back visits for you and your child (or another family member), which allows you to quickly get back to doing the things you enjoy. 

When should I schedule exams with my family physician?

Surya Medical Group specializes in preventive care and wellness. To help track changes in your health and detect abnormalities early on, you should plan on scheduling well-child, well-woman, or routine physicals around the same time every year.

Infants and toddlers under the age of three often need more frequent exams. Older patients may also need periodic geriatric care visits depending on their health and whether chronic disease management is needed.

But there are times outside of these routine visits when you need to see a doctor. The caring physicians at Surya Medical Group encourage you to come in if you or a family member are experiencing any of the following issues.

  • Fever 
  • Sore throat
  • Abdominal pain
  • Cold or flu symptoms
  • Constipation or diarrhea 
  • Injuries, including sports injuries

Your dedicated practitioner can run labs and administer any essential treatments during these types of sick visits, so you can start feeling better. 

How do I prepare for an exam at a family practice?

If you’re new to Surya Medical Group, or if you’ve been receiving care from a specialist or other provider, it’s helpful to request your medical records before your appointment. This way, your doctor can look over your records to gather a more inclusive glimpse of your overall health.

You may need to fast for several hours before certain blood tests, including some cholesterol and diabetes screenings. For a routine physical, the team informs you of any fasting requirements or other important pre-appointment measures you need to take.

As a dedicated family practice, Surya Medical Group can even help with routine school or sports physicals. If your child needs this type of physical, bring in any required paperwork your doctor needs to fill out.
