Unlike other physicians who specialize in treating one particular organ or disease, your family physician is uniquely trained to care for you as a whole person. In addition to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic illnesses, your family physician provides routine health screenings and counseling on lifestyle changes in an effort to prevent illnesses before they develop. And, if a health condition arises that requires care from another specialist, your family physician will be there to guide you and to coordinate all aspects of your care.
Doctors, such as Dr. Darlene Ouattara of Chester Springs Family Practice here in Eagleview Town Center, create an ongoing relationship with their patients which helps the doctor allow for faster care considering they already are familiar your medical history. Dr. Ouattara is a Board Certified Family Medicine physician and serves the needs of children ages 12 and up, adults, and seniors. She provides comprehensive preventive care, management of acute and chronic medical conditions, and teaches and encourages healthy lifestyle living.
