The Family Clinic is the core of the Clinic. Your first appointment at the Clinic would ideally be with the Family Physician. This will ensure that you get the holistic treatment and personal care a patient should get.

The Family Physician is important as s/he:

  • Acts as the nodal doctor for the patient;

  • Co-ordinates referrals to all specialists;

  • Makes a holistic clinical assessment of the patient’s health status;

  • Focuses on treating the patient rather than treating the symptom/ illness;

  • Supervises medication (avoiding repetitive or contra-indicated drug prescriptions).
