At Allegheny Health Network (AHN), we provide quality, compassionate family medicine across western Pennsylvania. Our family doctors can treat patients of all ages, including infants, children, adolescents, adults, and seniors.
Family medicine is the specialty that focuses on providing comprehensive care for individuals and entire families from birth through adulthood, in one practice.
People who are connected to their primary care doctors can experience a long-term, nurturing doctor-patient relationship. Family medicine training is broad, so AHN family physicians are comfortable treating any member of your family. Over time, your physician will get to know you and your family’s health history, communication needs, treatment preferences, and all the factors that can affect your total health and well-being.
Family physicians may also provide women's health services, including labor and delivery; office procedures for skin, muscles, and joints; and care for you if you become hospitalized. Additionally, family physicians also have training in the management of common mental health conditions, and some practices provide specialized care in treating addiction, HIV, hepatitis C, and obesity.
All of the AHN primary care specialists provide comprehensive, compassionate, and personalized care. Deciding between a family physician, a general internist, or a pediatrician for your family’s care depends on your preferences. Some people prefer to see a family physician, so that their entire family can get care from one doctor who's familiar with their health history. Others may prefer to see a primary care physician whose practice is tailored to one age group. It may come down to the right fit of personality or location.
