Telephone Guide :   foreign 062)220-6441 
  • Family Medicine is a medical field that provides total personal care to patients and their families for health promotion, health maintenance, disease prevention, communication of health information, patient education, medical diagnosis, and treatment and control of acute or chronic diseases. Family Medicine also serves as a gateway to the medical service system for patients. Its goal is to provide continuous care for patients whether they are healthy or ill, comprehensive care without overemphasizing any one medical specialty, and individualized care that offers the most appropriate care for the individual patient's situation.
    In particular, it emphasizes health promotion through smoking cessation, obesity control, regular exercise, diet modification, and stress management, as well as preventing infections with vaccinations, prevention of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension with periodic medical examinations, and detection and treatment of early stage cancers.
