PacMed Family Medicine – Northgate
Family Medicine, also known as Family Practice, is the medical specialty that provides comprehensive care for the individual and family. These physicians diagnose and treat the full range of issues people bring to the doctor.
Family Medicine practitioners cover all areas of general health care including pediatric and adolescent health, women’s health and gynecology, men’s health and aging issues. More than 20 board-certified Family Medicine physicians care for patients at Pacific Medical Centers locations throughout the Seattle area.
At the heart of this specialty is the patient-physician relationship. Our physicians value, develop and nurture this relationship among family members. You can depend on complete, personal care from medical professionals who take special interest in your unique health needs and in you as a person. And, they view every aspect of a person’s life as important to overall health. In addition to providing comprehensive care, our Family Medicine physicians can refer you to specialty care as needed.
