Swedish Family Medicine is working to become a place that you can call your medical home. We know that health problems can be hard to manage. For example, if you have multiple medical doctors or if you go into the hospital for care, it can be difficult to keep track of what to do next. We want to help you and your family know what the next steps are each time you make a transition. We also want to make sure that your primary care doctor knows what happened while you were at the hospital or when you met with another doctor. It always helps when our patients are able to provide this information. We may give you a call to set up an appointment to help you feel better.
