Alexander A Axelrod, MD, shares why he went into family medicine.
Alexander A Axelrod, MD: I practice family medicine but I am focusing on cardiovascular health such as hypertension and metabolic syndrome, like obesity, diabetes, and so forth. I have done several researches in this regard, and this has been my most interesting.
I see people growing from the newborns to adulthood. I see the change and evolution of the people. I see changes in their behavior; I see people live longer; and now I see the people not only enjoy to see their grandchildren, they now enjoy to see the great-grandchildren.
I think family medicine is the most fascinating field to be in medicine, where we can address all health issues through the whole family. There is no other field in medicine which will be like family medicine. And, therefore, being a part, I like being a part of the family, to help the family and members of the family with their health and influence their behavior and health as well.
The best patients are who have the union between the psychological health and the physical health. Please do not have the emotional state over your logical sense.
