Address: Hillman, MI
"My experience with Dr. Farmer was the worst experience of my life. I have never felt so degraded, embarrassed and humiliated in all my life. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. I would feel sorry if this doctor was working on animals. Bedside manner? None. Doctor does not listen to any of the patients symptoms you are having. Does not act upon the symptoms you are having. With tdoctors like Dr. Farmer working at McLaren Bay Regional Medical Center, no wonder they call it bay dead."

What is Family Medicine?

Currently in medical care in the United States, there are four main primary care specialties: family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, and geriatrics. Internal medicine is primary care for adults, pediatrics is primary care for children and infants, and geriatrics is primary care for seniors. Family medicine, the broadest specialty, is primary care for all ages.

A family medicine physician is a medical 'home base' for patients. They treat all ages, all sexes, all organs, and all diseases. They can see every member of the family, from birth through old age. This allows family medicine doctors to develop long-term relationships with their patients and to understand how their patients' role in the family affects their health. They can provide check-ups, immunizations, screening services, gynecological exams and obstetric care, routine health care, and health counseling. When more specialized care is needed, a family medicine doctor can refer their patients to appropriate specialists. They can become educators and advocates for their patients in the sometimes overwhelming health care system.

As health care changes in this country, family medicine is a growing specialty for families and individuals who are seeking more personalized health care and a more personal relationship with their physician.
