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, woman, or child
ill or well
seeking care, healing, or knowledge.

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