Family medicine is a type of medical care that involves caring for the entire family, whether it’s the children, the parents, or the grandparents. While a pediatrician cares for young patients and an internal medicine doctor cares for adults, a family medicine practitioner can do both. These types of physicians are trained in many areas, including pediatrics, internal medicine, psychology, neurology, orthopedics, endocrinology, gynecology, and more.
At Victory Medical Center, family medicine is considered the foundation for healthier individuals, healthier families, and healthier communities.

Collectively, the talented team of physicians at Victory Medical Center has experience in everything from weight loss and hormone therapy to allergy treatment and sports injuries.
