What if…
You had a personal health partner? Someone who understood you
Knew your family Lived in your community
Knew your passions, your worries and your history What if…
That person worked with you To keep you healthy
Helped make sure you were eating the right food Getting enough exercise Making good choices
And, when needed Gave you support to make changes in your life
to keep you healthy What if…
When you were sick You had one place to go
Where someone could look at you All of you
Figure out what’s wrong And give you the right care to get you healthy
again What if…
That person had the training to care for you from the day you were born until the last
day of your life And the commitment to be your advocate on
the best and the worst of those days What if…
They also had the knowledge and expertise to address not just one aspect of your health
Or one illness, or one organ But everything
From everyday illness to complex ongoing conditions that affect multiple areas of your life
And what if they could coordinate with other doctors and the hospital when you needed additional
care What if…
They were staying current on the latest research and standards of care
So that you had access to the best new treatments and innovations in health
This is what it means to have a family doctor Research shows that patients who have family
doctors live longer, healthier lives They’re less likely to be hospitlized or die
from chronic illness And they have a trusted partner that is dedicated
to keeping them, and their family, healthy To learn more go to findadoctor.theabfm.org
