The family physician provides comprehensive health care for all members of the family, from infants through senior citizens. From their offices throughout the community, our family practitioners emphasize preventive medical care, encompassing every aspect of the patient's health. When appropriate, they admit or refer patients to Abington Hospital – Jefferson Health or Abington – Lansdale Hospital for further care.
Board-certified Family Medicine physicians on staff at Abington are regularly involved in continuing medical education activities and the education of physicians in the Abington Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program. Abington Family Medicine is a family medicine center staffed by family physicians and resident physicians in training.
Several Family Medicine physicians have additional training and expertise in sports medicine; concussion and head injury care; and in geriatrics. Many of our Family Medicine physicians are also active in occupational medicine programs, providing preventive health maintenance, administering employee assistance programs and caring for on-the-job injuries.
