Family Medicine Q&A

What is family medicine?

Family medicine is a general type of medical care that addresses the needs of any and all age groups. The name “family” details that this type of care is relevant to every one of your relatives, whether they’re in older or younger generations. 

Dr. Leach provides the care that you need as an individual and can also provide age-specific care for your adolescents, parents, and grandparents. He gets to know you and your family members well to provide top-quality treatment at every stage of life. 

Internal medicine, a very similar discipline, is often mistaken for family care. However, the main difference is the focus on age. While family medicine can manage your health from birth until the end of your life, internal medicine is strictly for patients ages 18 and up. 

Which services does family medicine include?

The family medicine practice of William C Leach, MD, offers all the care options you need for health promotion, disease prevention, and managing various health conditions. Dr. Leach can perform various diagnostic tests in his office to help identify health conditions or track your health over time too.

Both family medicine and internal medicine include:

  • Physical exams
  • Preventive screenings
  • Vaccinations
  • Comprehensive laboratory testing
  • Imaging tests
  • Medical weight loss
  • Mental health care and addiction treatment
  • Chronic disease management

You can schedule visits for prevention and wellness purposes, make appointments when you’re sick, or come in for follow-ups and check-ins as you go through a long-term care plan for a chronic disease. 

What can a family medicine practitioner treat?

Family medicine practitioners like Dr. Leach specialize in physical and mental health management alike. Dr. Leach can develop a personalized care plan for the health condition or conditions affecting you while taking your personal goals and needs into account.
