FAMILY MEDICINE

Generally speaking, a family medicine doctor is a full spectrum physician who treats all members of the family providing continuous and comprehensive health care.

Bozeman Deaconess Family Medicine physicians deliver a range of acute, chronic, and preventive medical care services. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunizations, and screening tests, as well as personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family physicians manage chronic illness, while coordinating care provided by other sub specialists.

Our family medicine physicians enjoy being a part of the whole family. Knowing the dynamics of multiple generations and caring for each is part of their approach to good medical care for the entire family.

Medical Home

Medical Home is a team-led, patient-centered approach to health care, where the patient is the most important player on their healthcare team. The patient and the medical home team develop a plan of care created specifically for the patient, focuses on wellness and prevention, keeps the patient connected with the health care team and coordinates care with other health care providers.
