Family Medicine.

Your Health is Our Goal

We treat as a family in Dar Al Kamal Hospital. So, the quality care of your family is also our priority. We offer a comprehensive service by our family medicine doctors to all stages of life including the physical and psychological needs of all families. Family medicine is the combination of passion for the patients and a depth of knowledge of the human body that makes primary care such a unique, effective specialty. Access to a regular primary care physician has been linked to:
  • Lower infant mortality
  • Higher birth weights
  • Immunization rates above national standards
  • Lower overall healthcare costs
  • Longer, healthier lives
The AAFP represents 129,600 physicians and student members nationwide. It is the only medical society devoted solely to primary care. What do Family Physicians Do?
  • Schooling
Family physicians complete extensive training beyond medical school to be able to provide the best possible patient care, including a three-year residency; in-depth training across a human lifespan from birth to death; and potential additional fellowships and qualifications in concentrations like adolescent medicine, emergency medicine, faculty development, and more. Family medicine residents participate in integrated inpatient and outpatient learning and receive training in six major medical areas — pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine, psychiatry and neurology, surgery, and community medicine.
  • Practice
Family physicians provide the majority of care for America’s underserved rural and urban populations. In addition to diagnosing and treating illness, they also provide preventive care, including routine checkups, health-risk assessments, immunization and screening tests, and personalized counseling on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Family physicians also manage chronic illness, often coordinating care provided by other subspecialists. From heart disease, stroke and hypertension, to diabetes, cancer, and asthma, family physicians provide ongoing, personal care for the nation’s most serious health problems. Our Services:
