The goal of family medicine is to provide long-term treatment throughout your life. This allows you to build a strong relationship with your Arundel Medical Group physician. When the same provider treats you for many years, they gain a deeper understanding of your unique needs. If you have kids, you can also save time by avoiding a separate trip to a pediatrician.
