Family Physician, talks about the importance of adult vaccination, including the pneumococcal pneumonia vaccine.

What is Local Family Physician

Your local family physician is a medical doctor who treats patients of all ages. A local family physician provides primary care for people at all stages of life, whether it’s a newborn or a senior. They also focus on women’s health and men’s health. Some of the services your local family physician can provide include breast cancer screening, diabetes management, yearly physical exams and treatment for conditions such as asthma, digestive disorders and shingles. A local family physician can also refer you to other healthcare providers that can help with specialized conditions, such as a cardiologist, endocrinologist or dermatologist.

Annual Tests Patients May Need

Chronic pain from shingles is hard to treat and leads to huge problems for patients. Ask your health provider about how the shingles vaccination can reduce your risk of chronic shingles pain or post herpetic neuralgia. Even if you have had shingles, speak to your family doctor about the benefits of re-vaccination.

What to Expect at Your Doctor's Appointment

Your family physician knows your health history best. He or she can recommend how often you should come in for a physical exam or wellness check, and how frequently you need medical testing or screening done. To get the most out of your appointment, make sure your local family doctor has up-to-date medical records.

Regular bone density screenings, especially for individuals at higher risk, can help identify osteoporosis before fractures happen. Risk factors for developing osteoporosis include age (particularly postmenopausal women), a family history of the condition, low body weight, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, certain medical conditions, and the use of certain medications.
