As a family medicine physician, I treat a lot of chronic illnesses, particularly hypertension, diabetes, more recently obesity. If there is something that maybe runs in the family, it gives me a little more perspective of what may be going on with one patient. Seeing multiple family members also helps with the visit, because sometimes the extra family member present can help fill in on a history that the family member I’m treating may not be aware of, or something that they may have forgotten to tell me. I like to have my patients involved and as a partner in their health care. I like to be sure that everything is clear, that they understand — not only their diagnosis, they understand what we’re doing about their problem that they came to the clinic today for and what goals we’re setting. Sometimes patients don’t want to do what the doctor recommends, and so we work together to come up with a plan that works best for them and their lifestyle.
