Family medicine makes it possible for an entire family to receive high quality medical care from a single physician. Instead of traveling to several different clinics or medical centers throughout Perth Amboy and the surrounding areas, patients can treat everyone in the entire family in one location at New Jersey Disc Center!
What is Family Medicine?
Family medicine is a specialty of medicine devoted to the comprehensive health and wellness to patients of all ages. Unlike other specialties that focus on one particular area of the body, family medicine integrates all areas of medicine to treat the whole person. Dr. Christophe Oliveira and the team of medical professionals at New Jersey Disc Center provide preventative care, diagnose common ailments, treat the ailments and refer patients to other specialty providers when the occasion arises. No matter a patient’s age or gender, treatment plans are tailored to the patient’s individual needs rather than the symptoms themselves. This allows us to gain a better knowledge of the patient’s story and history, allowing the team to provide the best care possible. New Jersey Disc Center practices proactive, predictive, personalized medicine and empowers patients to take an active role in their own health.
