Diagnosis in Family Medicine

At Gleneagles HealthCity Chennai, family medicine doctors cultivate relationships built on trust and confidentiality with their patients, ensuring effective communication and delivering the best possible medical care. Diagnosis marks the initial step toward successful treatment, management, and prevention of a wide range of health conditions and diseases.

Consequently, family medicine doctors collect and interpret various pieces of information from patients based on their symptoms and medical history, and recommend further screening or testing to confirm or rule out suspected ailments.
