Do you have a family Doctor

I have a family doctor and we are consulting him for the last 15 years.I think a family doctor can understand and diagonalize our all problems very well.Changing the doctor continuously is not good.If we got full faith in doctors,then our disease can be cured easily.

We do have a family doctor. He has been our family doctor for 8 years already. I do agree with you that having a family doctor is really good considering that they have a good history of our past and present medical condition. So when we feel something bad, it would be easier for them to diagnose what kind of problem we have. Eventually, it is not good to change a doctor from time to time. Although, sometimes, a doctor may refer us to another most especially if it requires some medical specialization. We have to understand that the medical field is such a big field. So sometimes there are problems that requires expert opinion from the other medical field.

We have a family doctor who we see for all our needs and he has been advising us since the last 14 years. It's only when he feels that some problems need the attention of a specialist does he advise us to someone else.

Well... There is this doctor in my hometown. He's not officially stated as our family doctor, but since he has been helping my family since years, I think he is our family doctor. He was there when my grandfather had the first heart attack, and started from that moment kept the good relationship with my family. He was a general practitioner who was quite famous in the town. Many people came to him because he was really kind...
