Dr. Aziz said it is important for families to regularly see their primary care physician.
"The key to good health is prevention and that's why family doctors are important," Dr. Aziz said. "We can make sure that all your preventative measures are met and you're staying healthy."
Family medicine doctors care for patients of all ages, from infants to seniors, and often care for several members of the same family. Family medicine doctors manage the overall health of growing individuals of any age — not just a specific age group.
The Loyola Center for Health at Gottlieb, 701 W. North Ave., Melrose Park, Illinois, recently opened Suite 414 in the Professional Office Building at Gottlieb Memorial Hospital. In addition to primary care, sports medicine services are also being offered at this location.
