The family physician’s training prepares her to deliver comprehensive care.
This means the majority of your healthcare needs can be taken care of under one roof often eliminating the need for multiple doctors. Resilient Health can provide a wide range of acute, chronic and preventive medical care services for teens and adults. Our sister practice, Balcones Woods Family Medicine does care for infants and young children as well as adults.
In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, full spectrum family medicine also provides preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, musculoskeletal care, hormonal issues including thyroid and other causes of fatigue, dermatology including the removal of many types of skin lesions, help with cognition and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family physicians also manage chronic illness, often coordinating care provided by other subspecialists. Many American family physicians deliver babies and provide prenatal care as well. The family physician's practice continually evolves as competency in current skills is maintained and new knowledge and skill are obtained through continuing medical education.
The family physician's care utilizes knowledge of the patient in the context of the family and the community. This care emphasizes disease prevention and health promotion. You will be referred as necessary to other resources of care while we preserve your continuity of care.
