Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

A family medicine specialist provides comprehensive care for the medical needs of both children and adults. Family medicine emphasizes the development of an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship to foster preventive and integrated care.

At Center4Health, the team offers a variety of services including:

  • Wellness checks
  • Annual vaccinations
  • Sports and work physicals
  • Pregnancy testing and obstetrical support
  • Well-woman care
  • Geriatric medicine
  • Blood pressure testing and lab work

Trust Center4Health to offer comprehensive care to people of all ages. They have a compassionate, but professional, manner that makes patients feel welcome.

What is considered pediatric care?

Pediatricians specialize in the health care needs of children, including basic wellness checks, vaccinations, growth and development monitoring, and treatment of minor illnesses. These services, as well as asthma care and hearing and eyesight testing, are available at Center4Health. This convenient type of care means there’s no need to seek out a separate provider and appointment for every member of your family.

What is geriatric care?

Adults aged 65 and older often have special health needs. More than half the adults of this age have at least three major medical problems, such as heart disease, arthritis, or diabetes.  At Center4Health, the team understands seniors’ special medical concerns and they’re equipped to handle these unique health care needs.

The providers at Center4Health may evaluate a senior’s social support and living situation. They also consider their ability to function with normal daily activities, such as bathing and eating.

What is well-woman care?

At Center4Health, the providers support women’s reproductive health care needs. A woman’s reproductive health is an essential part of her entire well-being. Services may include:

  • Birth control
  • STD testing
  • Pap smears
  • Annual pelvic exams
  • Pregnancy testing
  • Obstetrical support

A woman’s reproductive health evolves through stages as she progresses through life. Having a consistent family physician, such as Dr. Covington, helps each woman develop a relationship with their provider. This fosters trust, better care, and a great understanding of reproductive goals and changes, including pregnancy and menopause.

Trust the Center4Health with all of your family’s medical concerns – whether it’s for a middle-aged adult, a young child, or an aging senior. Call the office or book an appointment online today.
