Family Practice

Lake Howell Health Center specializes in family practice and family medicine. Our family practitioners treat people at every stage of life. We take a whole-person approach to not just treat your symptoms, but to understand the causes of ailments and conditions. This helps people remain healthy throughout their lives. By studying your medical history, we find treatment options that are right for you.

What is Family Practice?

Family practice is a branch of medicine that treats patients by studying their health history and common ailments. The relationship between doctor and patient develops through this process, allowing for a more accurate treatment process.

Building strong relationships with patients help doctors treat issues more effectively. This sets family physicians apart from other doctors, as treatments are offered with the patient’s overall health history in mind. With the patient’s trust, the doctor can effectively treat their medical issues.
