Overview of the Family Medicine Program 

The Family Medicine Program at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s Medical Subspecialties Institute provides compassionate, Patients First care to the whole family. Unlike other physicians, who specialize in treating one particular organ or disease, family medicine physicians are uniquely trained to treat multiple members of the family and a wide range of conditions, caring for men and women of all ages. 

Family Medicine Program physicians are dedicated to excellence in primary care, focusing on each patient in the context of his or her whole family. A continuous relationship between the patient and the physician makes it possible for them to work together to achieve the best possible results in the patient’s health.

Diagnosis & Treatment in Family Medicine

Family Medicine Program physicians are trained to provide comprehensive, Patients First healthcare to patients of all ages. Staff within the Family Medicine Program pay special attention to their patients' health within the context of family and the community. 

In addition to diagnosing and treating acute and chronic illnesses, physicians provide routine preventive health screenings and proactively counsel patients on lifestyle changes in order to help prevent illnesses from developing.
