A family medicine doctor is your partner in helping you stay healthy or manage chronic conditions. A family doctor can see individuals or whole families, from birth to old age. They can also provide low-risk obstetric services.

Family doctors work with you to help you achieve or maintain good health. They can help manage complex, chronic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure or treat acute conditions such as back pain or shingles.

In addition, they collaborate with experts throughout Rush University Medical Center to connect with specialized care when needed.
