“Family Physicians have the unique privilege to serve patients, individually and in families, throughout the continuum of a lifetime. From the foundation of a physician-patient relationship built and maintained over time, a family physician is able to teach, support, advise, and provide meaningful preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic assistance – in care personally rendered and by means of appropriate consultations with other health care professionals.”
