According to data from the Lampung Provincial Health Office in 2021, the prevalence of hypertension in South Lampung is 24.8% of the total population aged ≥ 15 years is 762,894 people. The purpose of this case report is to implement holistic and comprehensive family doctor services by identifying risk factors, clinical problems, and patient management based on Evidence Based Medicine with a patient centered and family focused approach.
