Abstract

Holistic medicine is one of the core competencies of the family medicine discipline, and in this context, it deals with the physical, mental and social health of the patient. In this case report, the management of a patient who does not have a family doctor contact with a holistic approach is mentioned. An eighty-year-old male patient applied to our family medicine clinic with complaints of frequent shortness of breath and palpitation while walking, and to be referred to the cardiology outpatient clinic. As a result of the examinations, gastric adenocarcinoma was detected. It is important for people to visit their family doctor at regular intervals.
