Traditional Family Medicine

WHAT IS TRADITIONAL FAMILY MEDICINE?

Traditional Family Medicine (TFM) is the medical specialty devoted to a broad range of comprehensive health care and medical services for people of all ages and genders. Family doctors are recognized as the most broadly trained doctors in all medicine covering more treatment areas. Unlike medical specialists with limited training in specific areas for specific patients, family doctors are trained to treat the entire body for their patients.

TFM commonly accepts commercial and government insurance plans, where care and services can be limited to policy terms and conditions.

Choosing a Medical Program

CHOOSING THE RIGHT MEDICAL PROGRAM

When looking for a Family or Bariatric Physician, it’s wise to find one that will meet your needs and set you up for long-term success.

In general, look for medical programs developed from sound medical protocols and designed to meet your health needs and goals. Preferably, find programs available from state-of-the-art facilities, with experienced doctors, convenient in-house services, and a highly trained staff.

Also, consider where you live and work when choosing medical care services. A distant location may interfere when committing to a medical care program.

The best-case scenario for many patients is finding a proper family medical care facility that’s close to your home. A place with the right doctors, highly trained staff, and offers multiple in-house services. AVISTA Medical Center is all of those things and more, and if you’re living or working in the Gilbert area, please consider choosing one of AVISTA’s medical programs.

Preventative & Wellness Services

PREVENTION & WELLNESS

Also known as “Health Management” is the process of being aware and choosing a healthy life. Prevention is the act of knowing your health status and where it needs care. Wellness is the status of being free from illness.

While only some plans cover comprehensive Health Management options, many barely scratch the surface of Prevention & Wellness options available. We can help you to determine what your policy includes and provide you with cash options for the rest.

Don’t let the lack of insurance coverage determine your health care. AMC has low cash-prices.
