FAQ: What is the difference between a General Practitioner and Family Medicine Doctor?
Family Practice is very similar to General Practice but requires an additional 2 years of hands on procedural training broadening the spectrum of what can be managed by your physician.
FAQ: What is underserved dermatology?
Underserved dermatology was created to help patients avoid long wait times to see a Dermatologist. It is an additional year of specialty training focused only on dermatology skin conditions. This allows the physician to manage a variety of simple and complex skin conditions within a primary care setting. People who complete this fellowship (specialized training) Board Certify through Family Medicine rather than the board of Dermatology.
FAQ: What is the difference between a DO (Doctor of Osteopathy) MD (Medical Doctor)?
Both complete 4 years of medical school with the similar curriculum and (in most cases) same or similar certification examinations. MD programs tend to be more research based with a scientific yet humanistic approach to medicine. Osteopathic schools focus on a more holistic approach to medicine, which includes, acknowledging social, emotional and other outside factors and how it relates to the overall health of a patient.
