Family Practice Q & A

What is family practice medicine?

Family practice care is designed to help you reach and maintain optimal health. It places an emphasis on preventing chronic disease and other health problems by offering state-of-the-art health and nutrition practices. Preventative action is truly the best approach to health care, as it helps eliminate problems before they ever even arise.

CostCare’s family practice medical team believes in promoting comprehensive nutrition counseling to limit and cut out inflammation throughout the body, boost the immune system, and help regulate hormone balance. Although prescribing medication is a part of family practice medicine, CostCare providers are dedicated to avoiding prescribed medications unless you absolutely need it.

Family practice providers are uniquely qualified to treat your whole family, from children to adults, and over time, they become familiar with your family history and dynamics. This complements their versatility and ability to diagnose and treat a broad range of health conditions across all ages.

Also, family practice focuses on the patient-provider relationship.
