Your Family Doctor

Your First Stop for Good Health

When you’re sick — and even when you’re healthy — it’s good to have a family doctor who knows you. One who understands your health risks, your lifestyle and your wellness goals. The family medicine doctors at AdventHealth Ottawa, formerly Ransom Memorial Health, will work to form a lasting, trusted relationship with you. 

Regular well checks and even sick visits will help your primary care physician (PCP) identify any concerning health changes, personalize your care and counsel you on how to improve your health. They’ll advise when you need screening tests, immunizations or other care, and can refer you to a specialist when necessary. And, if you have a chronic condition, such as arthritis or diabetes, our family physicians will help you stay as healthy as possible.

Family medicine doctors treat people of all ages, and they often see more than one member of the same family.
