Did you know a family doctor is part pediatrician and part medical internist? That means we’re trained to provide great care for both children and adults.
After medical school, a family doctor completes three additional years in a medical residency focused on family medicine. This intensive training provides rotations in all the disciplines a family physician needs: internal medicine, emergency medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, obstetrics and gynecology, surgery, geriatrics, and more.
The cornerstone of Leonida Family Practice is the special knowledge we bring to healing people of all ages, from infants to octogenarians.
It’s all about getting to know you and your “normal.” By seeing patients regularly and checking up on your health and lifestyle changes, we become your partner in preventative care and your first line of defense in spotting health problems early.
We also have great working relationships with specialists in many medical fields throughout the Pittsburgh region. When a health problem comes up that needs specialized care, we do our best to refer you to trusted health care providers whom we know will join hands with us in helping create the best healthcare outcome for you.
At Leonida Family Practice, we say “Let Our Family Care for Yours,” and we mean it. When your family turns to us for primary care, we build up important knowledge about your family’s health history and current medical situation. Many health issues run in families, from chronic conditions to medical red-flags like genetic predispositions to heart disease. Put simply, what we learn from treating your parents may help us better screen for conditions that may crop up in your future, and what we learn from treating you may help us better understand the risks your children face.
