General and Family Medicine

General and Family Medicine is one of the main specialities which cares for the person in the context of his/her family and at the same time promotes a holistic approach to the patient, integrating physical and psychological factors, in a close doctor-patient relationship.

General and Family Medicine doctors also promote general well-being, prevent diseases, and provide curative, follow-up or palliative care, either directly or by facilitating access to other health professionals. They play a fundamental role in primary health care, namely in advising therapies for the most common pathologies and in providing guidance and coordination with other medical specialties.

Joaquim Chaves Saúde Medical clinics feature General and Family Medicine specialists who provide regular follow-up to patients and their families.
