The Family Physician’s Creed

I am a Family Physician
one of many across this country.

This is what I believe:

You, the patient, are my first professional responsibility
whether man or woman or child,
ill or well,
seeking care, healing or knowledge.

You and your family deserve high quality, affordable health
care including treatment, prevention and health promotion.
I support access to health care for all.

The specialty of family practice
trains me to care for the whole person
physically and emotionally, throughout life,
working with your medical history and family dynamics,
coordinating your care with other physicians when necessary.

This is my promise to you.
