Family Medicine in Englewood, Florida

Family Medicine

Family medicine is a clinical specialization and an academic, scientific discipline. The health care system, for most people, starts precisely with family medicine. It encompasses services to all family members regardless of age, gender, or the type of problem a family member is experiencing. Out of all the branches of medicine, family medicine is the closest you can get to patient orientation, in the sense of dedication to the patient and creating a close bond between the doctor and patient over a period of time. 

Here are some of the benefits of family medicine:

  • Continual care over time and in various conditions
  • Unique epidemiology and a specific decision-making process
  • Handles health problems in their physical, psychological, social, and cultural environments, to differentiate from the standard clinical environment 
  • Promotes the development and maintenance of good health through appropriate, safe, and effective interventions
  • Uses resources in an effective and safe way through coordination of care, management of patients and establishing and maintaining contact with other professionals

Patient Feedback

I’ve been a patient of Dr. CHIRILLO’S for over 25 years–in my humble opinion, he’s the best-most caring, knowledgeable and will recommend a specialist, when needed!!

Grateful Patient

I had my first exam with Dr. Chirillo yesterday. He is very easy going and answers all questions thoroughly and patiently. I was very pleased with him, and would recommend him highly.

Grateful Patient

Dr Chirillo is very down to eartth and very thorough. He spends time getting to the root of the problem and includes the person in the plan of care. As a new Florida resident my husband and I were thrilled to find a local physician with Dr Chirillo’s background and skills.
