Fort Worth Family Doctor Now Accepting New Patients

Do you want a family doctor who will sit down and thoroughly discuss your health, without rushing you out the door? 

Perhaps you’re looking for a doctor who listens rather than interrupts and doesn’t assume you don’t know what’s going on?

What about a doctor who investigates your health problems rather than one who is quick to refer you to an expensive specialist after just a few questions?

Do you want a physician who gets to know you and your family so they can help you solve problems today and prevent issues for tomorrow?

4 Steps to Root Cause

Do you see your family doctor regularly?

If not, here’s how a family doctor can help get you healthier and make your life easier.

Put simply, a family doctor is a “one-stop shop” for all your family’s medical care.

In other words, your family doctor is (or at least should be) responsible for overseeing all your medical care. At times, your family doctor might suggest that you see a specialist. When this happens, you want a family doctor to work with you to identify which specialist to see. Then, they should coordinate your care with that specialist.

Some conditions definitely require care from a specialist. However, far too many people are referred out to other doctors for something that could be handled by a family doctor.

Many patients end up with multiple doctors. It’s like having too many “cooks in the kitchen.” The result is decentralized and disorganized care. It’s far too easy for medical professionals to miss things when no one really knows you and your family.

Consider a sports team like the Dallas Cowboys. Individual players possess incredible skill and talent for their specific role. The quarterback works with this team of specialists to make great plays. It works because each player is being leveraged for their specific value to the whole of the team.

But what if quarterback wasn’t invited to many of the games? Can you imagine the disorganization of a team that doesn’t have the glue that brings it all together?

Your family doctor isn’t supposed to be a specialist, like a rheumatologist, an oncologist, or an ophthalmologist. The specialists are extremely expensive, and they work with people to overcome specific health problems. Your family doctor is meant to be by your side for life.

This means your family doctor gets to know you. Specialists might miss something because they’re focused on a narrow portion of your health (they’re supposed to!). By keeping your family doctor regularly involved, they can be on the look for problems that only a doctor who knows you might notice.

It also means that those who see a family doctor receive “more timely care, better preventive care … improved costs, and lower mortality,” all while avoiding unnecessary care (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality).

And better, more consistent care can help you live a healthier, longer life. With a great family doctor, you get someone who can manage all aspects of your family’s medical care for your entire life.

In large part, this increased quality of care comes from the immense power of the doctor-patient relationship. While a specialist is unlikely to know you and your family—other than by some numbers and words on a chart—your family doctor takes the time to get to know you.

Practically, this means that your family doctor can better identify the real cause of what’s ailing you. We’ve seen many patients come to us after visiting other doctors who thought their problem was physical—just to discover than an emotional burden was disrupting their body’s normal functioning. It’s by taking the time to get to know you and your family that a family doctor can provide the care you need—not the care the medical system thinks you need.

What kind of care does a family doctor provide?

You might think of a family doctor as just providing regular check-ups and helping with minor problems. But they can help with so much more.

 

Your family doctor helps you prevent future health problems, saving you time and money in the long run.

Because your family doctor will often see you for your entire life, they often focus on providing excellent preventative care. Unlike a specialist—who only sees you when something goes wrong—your family doctor is responsible for your overall health, and that means helping you stop problems in their tracks before they even arise.

Your family doctor can help you recover from acute conditions.

If you’re facing insomnia that’s disrupting your life, your family doctor can work with you to identify the underlying cause of the insomnia. Then, they’ll offer you treatment options and see your treatment through until the issue is resolved.

Your family doctor can help you overcome even severe chronic problems.

Imagine a patient with Parkinson’s Disease. That patient may see a Physical Therapist and/or a Neurologist, but their family doctor can help them determine the proper courses of treatment, as well as monitor their medications and ensure the individual receives the proper care for their condition.

Family doctors are the “end of the line” in many people’s care, so they are responsible for “figuring out” the solution to people’s medical problems. As the American Association of Family Physicians notes, family doctors “provide the majority of care for America’s underserved rural and urban populations.” The buck stops with your family doctor, which means they have a wide base of knowledge to handle whatever medical situations arise.

 

Listening and Understanding Are the Core of Our Family Practice

0
Average Number of Seconds Before the Doctor Interrupts You

According to studies, less than a quarter of all patients get to say everything they want to say during a visit with their doctor. Even worse, they generally only talk less than 20 seconds before being interrupted by their doctor.

Not only is that a miserable experience for you, the patient, but it also prevents these doctors from doing their job in helping you get healthier.

You know your body, and no amount of medical training is enough for doctors to provide excellent care without listening to you and what your body has been experiencing.

That’s why we commit at least 30 minutes for every appointment—so that we can listen to you and your concerns.

But it’s about more than listening—it’s about understanding.

Many patients come to us experiencing symptoms, but completely uncertain of what’s causing those symptoms. It’s our job to uncover the real cause of your health problems, and that means understanding everything about your health problems.

One way we do this is by asking targeted questions about your health that can help us truly understand you. Many doctors stop at “When did you start feeling this way?”, but we know that we need to dig to find the root cause.
