Why is family medicine important?
Many patients use walk-in clinics to get care on an as-needed basis. While clinic doctors often provide excellent care, it’s also important to have a regular family medicine doctor when you need medical help.
When patients see many different doctors, medical problems and complications sometimes slip through the cracks. Working with one doctor allows you to build a close relationship with your medical provider and allows them to screen you for potential health problems and provide in-depth care. The goal of Dr. Rezk and his team is to make families feel like part of their family.
