Family Practice is the medical specialty concerned with the total health care of the individual and the family. The family practitioner can, in a sense, be considered the general practitioner of medicine. Family practitioners mainly take care of adults, but also are qualified to take care of children and some may even elect to perform deliveries. The scope of family practice is not limited by age, sex, or disease. Family practitioners refer to other specialists when they deem it necessary. They are also specially trained to recognize and treat problems of family dynamics and how this impacts on the health of the individual members.
