Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

What services can family medicine specialists provide?

Family medicine specialists are uniquely qualified to provide all-inclusive primary care. Your primary care provider is the first doctor you see when you’re ill, due for a checkup, or in need of chronic disease management. 

The most common services provided by the family medicine specialists at Clinica San Miguel are:

Physical exams

A routine physical exam is a preventive assessment to evaluate your overall health. Most medical providers recommend visiting for a physical at least once a year to identify changes in your health and fitness. 

Along with routine physicals, the team at Clinica San Miguel offers Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals, school physicals, and immigration physicals.

Preventive screenings

Preventive screenings can help identify early signs of disease. The team at Clinica San Miguel provides a full selection of common screenings, including physical exams, Pap smears, prostate exams, sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing, and bloodwork that checks for abnormal cholesterol and blood pressure levels.

Diagnostic testing

The team performs a variety of diagnostic tests to investigate new or worsening symptoms. Ultrasounds, bloodwork, electrocardiograms (EKGs), and COVID-19 testing are a few of the diagnostic tests the team offers.

Abscess drainage

An abscess is a pus-filled lump that typically develops from a bacterial infection. By creating an incision in the roof of the abscess, the team can drain the lesion and prevent the infection from spreading to other areas of the body.

Sick care

If you’re feeling unwell, the team can investigate your symptoms for an accurate diagnosis and treatment.
