Family Medicine

Family doctors are specialists in YOU.

At Kaiser Permanente, you have your choice of many great doctors to be your primary care physician. Why see a different doctor from the one your spouse, partner or child sees? When you all choose the same primary care physician specializing in family medicine, your doctor can build a relationship with your whole family – focusing on the total health of each one of you. It is the special joy of family medicine physicians to take care of you throughout your life. Whether you are 8 or 80, whether you need a Pap smear or a camp physical, diabetic care, or help with breast feeding, your family doctor can be there for you.
