Additionally, they focus on prevention and wellness to help you prevent illness before it occurs.

Family medicine providers are trained and experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting any part of the body. This includes:
Your family practitioner has both a proactive and reactive role in your care. He or she aims to promote your ongoing health and wellness through active screening and patient education designed to prevent illness from occurring. He or she is also ready to spring into action when you become ill or suffer an injury, strategizing for your complete recovery through safe and effective treatment.
The providers at Van Nuys Urgent Care Family Medicine have admitting privileges at local facilities to ensure continuity of care for their patients.
There are multiple benefits to working with a family medicine provider:
Preventive exams, often called physicals, are recommended annually. Because many life-limiting illnesses don’t present symptoms that are noticeable, an annual physical allows your doctor or nurse practitioner to review your lab values and identify risk factors or problems as early as possible. This allows treatment to begin immediately, improving your long-term outcome.
