Family Medicine vs. Internal Medicine: Knowing the Difference

To find the proper doctors for your needs, it’s important to first understand the difference between two types that may be confused at times. Our team of passionate, expert doctors at CyFair Medical Partners is dedicated to providing you and your family with the appropriate care needed, and we offer both family medicine and internal medicine to the Northwest Houston communities. Let’s explore the difference between the two:

Family Medicine
This branch of care focuses on all members of the family, young and old. Our Cypress family medicine physicians deliver care right from the start, with prevention, through to diagnosis and treatment, and on to follow-up care. Not only do we provide high levels of care and medical attention, but we also offer health education to all age groups. We’ll help your children understand the importance of healthy eating habits, and coordinate at-home care or nursing home care for your parents. We truly offer something for everyone with our Cypress Family medicine specialty.

Internal Medicine
In contrast, internal medicine focuses specifically on adult medical care. This care consists of preventing, diagnosing, and treating acute and chronic illnesses in adults. We provide health screenings, immunizations, lab draws, diagnostic tests and review, occupational medicine and so much more. Our internal medicine physicians will help you manage chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, or arthritis, just to name a few.
