"I was involved in an accident. My left leg was amputated as a result of the accident and I had major surgery on my spine. I watched as two of my co-workers die in front of me. As a result of the accident I suffered post-traumatic stress disorder. A day does not go by without me remembering the death of my co-workers and I am tortured by the pain I live with. Dr. Koss sent a non-certification to my primary doctor's request for me to receive psychotherapy. He did this without ever having met me and completely disregarding the emotional distress I am living with. I need psychotherapy and because of him I have been denied such treatment. "

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.
