Family medical history

HOPEWELL, VA (WWBT) - Dr. John Clay suggests you take a look at your family medical history.

Family history is a vital component to the medical history and affects doctor's decision-making when treating patients.

Many patients (particularly young people) do not know the medical problems their parents, grandparents, and siblings have.

The holidays are the perfect time to discuss this topic as you gather your family together.
