Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

A family medicine provider has specialized training to care for people of all ages. Family medicine focuses on prevention to promote optimal health and wellness. 

Your provider’s goal is to maintain your health throughout life thanks to preventive health screenings, chronic disease management, and prompt sick care. 

 

What does family medicine include?

Your family medicine provider is the first medical professional you see when you need care. Whether you feel unwell, need a vaccine, have a question or concern regarding your health, or you’re due for your annual health screening, your family medicine provider at the office of Saba Shabnam, MD, FAAFP, delivers comprehensive care.

Dr. Shabnam provides a wide range of services for her patients. These services typically include:

 

Physical exams

A physical exam is a comprehensive health assessment that aims to evaluate your health. 

During a physical, your provider reviews your medical history and asks you questions about your health. They enter this information into your medical history so they can refer back to it as you age. The physical portion of the exam is a head-to-toe evaluation.

 

Health screenings

Saba Shabnam, MD, FAAFP, performs several preventive health screenings, such as lung function testing, women’s health exams, and thyroid function screenings.

 

Sick care

If you feel unwell, your provider can diagnose and treat your condition to restore your health.

 

Immunizations

Immunizations, or vaccinations, protect you against communicable diseases, like chickenpox, influenza (flu), and hepatitis A and B.

 

Chronic disease management

Chronic diseases, like diabetes and hypertension (high blood pressure), increase your risk of potentially severe complications, like heart disease and stroke.

 

When should I see a family medicine provider?

The providers recommend visiting at least once yearly for an exam. You should also stay up-to-date on your immunizations, and always schedule an appointment if you experience signs of illness, such as:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Sore throat
  • White spots in the back of your throat
  • Fever
  • Muscle aches or chills
  • Rash
