Family Medicine

If you’re looking for a physician who can care for every member of your family, UMass Memorial Health Care can help. We have more than 50 family medicine physicians who provide primary care services at our Worcester campuses as well as throughout the region.

What Is a Family Medicine Physician?

Family medicine physicians care for patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly. Some family physicians also deliver babies, giving you a one-stop resource for managing all your family’s health concerns at every stage of life.
