Family Physicians' Creed
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 health care
including treatment, prevention
and health promotion.
I support access to health care for all.
The specialty of family medicine
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.
