The Family Medicine specialty was created in 1969 to fill the need for generalist physicians who could treat all patients of all ages. Positioned more proportionally than any other specialty nationwide, Family Medicine physicians undergo extensive training to provide the most comprehensive healthcare for people of all ages. In short, family physicians treat the illnesses, injuries, and conditions of the entire family, from newborn infants to a great-grandmother. At Grand Lake Primary Care, Dr. Russell treats all members of your family as her own.
While specialists serve a vital role in the medical landscape, Family Medicine Physicians fill the important generalist role left by the variety of specialists. With the training and ability to meet the entire family’s medical needs under one room, Family Physicians offer high-quality care coupled with the convenience of a single office visit. This is especially important in rural areas where access to medical care is the greatest hindrance to overall health. When you put your health in the hands of a family physician, you are gaining access to a breadth of training, information, and experience that is unparalleled in any other specialty.
Family Medicine Physicians such as Dr. Russell have the flexibility to provide care for the whole family under one roof.
