Family Medicine Q & A

What is family medicine?

Dr. Avitabile at RiverCity Family Medicine is dedicated to two things: treating the whole person and treating the whole family. He follows a holistic approach, taking his time with each member of your family to understand their unique body, lifestyle choices, health care preferences, and more.

The difference between a family medicine doctor and another type of doctor like an internist is that a family medicine doctor can see every member of your family. Dr. Avitabile sees patients as young as age four and continues on with your family throughout their entire lives. With everything from pediatric to geriatric care, he can be your primary source of health support. 

No taking your kids to a doctor’s office where they don’t feel comfortable, and no having to find another doctor for yourself later in life. Just a team of caring, dedicated health experts who partner with you to keep your entire family healthy long-term. 

What should I expect from family medicine?

When you visit RiverCity Family Medicine, you won’t be rushed through or prescribed a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, Dr. Avitabile takes his time to get to know you.
