Family Medicine

Family medicine is a type of primary medical care that focuses on providing comprehensive care to patients across the lifespan. This encompasses preventative, diagnostic, therapeutic, and compassionate medical care for individuals in their family unit. It also promotes healthy behaviour among families and offers education on health matters. Our family medicine doctors are medical professionals who focus on providing comprehensive primary care to individuals of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. They study and treat a variety of health conditions, as well as provide preventive care and lifestyle counseling.
They provide comprehensive, personalised care for patients of all ages and stages of life and specialise in preventive medicine, acute and chronic disease management, mental health care, and more. They often lead interprofessional teams to coordinate the best possible care for their patients. The responsibilities of our family medicine doctors include prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of illnesses; providing primary care for patients; and referring patients to specialists when needed. They are also responsible for creating treatment plans, discussing lifestyle modifications with the patient, and ensuring the patient’s safety.
At Geetai Hospitals, we provide a wide range of preventive health treatments that cover everything from general physical examinations to vaccinations. From detecting problems before they worsen to preventing future issues, family medicine can be a powerful ally in protecting your health. That’s why Geetai Hospitals is proud to be one of the leading hospitals for family medicine. Our team is dedicated to ensuring the health of your entire family.

Family medicine tests

Family medicine tests are important for disease prevention and diagnosis. Regular screenings can greatly improve the chances of early detection and effective treatments for conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Here are five tests that you should get from your family doctor on a regular basis.
  • Physical examination: Looking at medical history, any existing issues, and other symptoms.
  • Urine culture: Testing urine for bacteria or infection.
  • Blood test: Checking for cholesterol, sugar levels, and other signs of illness.
  • X-ray: To detect bone or organ problems such as heart issues or cancerous cells that can’t be seen with the naked eye.
  • ECG (or EKG) tests: These check the electrical activity in the heart to look out for abnormal rhythms that could indicate a cardiac issue or stroke risks.
  • Cost-effective: Hysteroscopy is often a more cost-effective option compared to traditional surgical procedures, as it requires fewer resources and has a shorter recovery time.
