Choose a doctor your family will never outgrow. A family doctor treats mothers-to-be, babies, preschoolers, budding athletes — and their moms, dads and grandparents. Many Emory Clinic primary care doctors have specialized training that focuses on treating the whole family.

Emory Clinic family doctors offer preventive care, treat many kinds of illnesses, and help manage ongoing conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes. They work to help you — and your whole family — stay healthy at every age.

Your family doctor can be your doctor for life

Doctors used to care for families for generations. The same doctor who delivered your mother may have cared for her chicken pox, her brother’s broken rib, her mother’s arthritis and her father’s heart problem. You can still get that level of family care and attention.

Family medicine doctors are generalists who can treat many types of conditions. In some cases, they can treat issues that might otherwise need a specialist – such as sports injuries, maternity care or age-related problems. If you ever do need to see a specialist, your family doctor can coordinate your care.

  • Lifestyle and wellness education
