Family Medicine

Share/Save/Bookmark

Botsford's department of Family Medicine and the practice of family medicine started Botsford Hospital many years ago. The goal of family practice includes preventative medicine, keeping you healthy, while treating the whole body rather than zeroing in on a specific part. Along with keeping you as healthy as possible, family practice doctors can treat all family members, if desired. This familial link can help a doctor diagnose when there is need for medical care.

Botsford's department of Family Medicine is the largest medical department of the hospital, featuring over 100 family medicine doctors.

And Botsford offers residency and fellowship programs to train future doctors. We are a teaching site of Michigan State University's College of Osteopathic Medicine.

What does D.O. mean?

A doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.) is a fully licensed medical doctor offering all the techniques and treatments of modern medicine with the added benefits of hands-on diagnostics and a holistic philosophy.

The "hands-on" medical treatment is based on an in-depth understanding of how all of the body’s systems are connected.
