The providers at UK Family & Community Medicine specialize in delivering comprehensive health care to patients of all ages, from infants to older adults. Our family physicians and providers are well-equipped to diagnose and manage a wide range of acute and chronic illnesses. They also offer preventive care, including vaccinations, screenings and wellness exams. As a one-stop shop for your entire family, our providers consider circumstance, family history and patient preference when planning procedures and treatment options to best suit each individual’s needs.

What is family medicine?

While some providers specialize in a particular field such as pediatrics or women’s health, family medicine providers are specially trained to provide primary care for the whole family.

UK Family & Community Medicine providers can help manage chronic diseases as well as address illnesses and injuries. After a careful assessment, they can accurately diagnose and treat a patient or refer them to a specialist if needed.

Having regular appointments with a family medicine provider is good practice for long-term health and more personalized care. It gives one provider the opportunity to get to know you and understand your health – and that of your family – over time. Our providers value your family’s story and are dedicated to helping you make important decisions regarding your family’s wellness.
