What is Primary Care?

There are several kinds of primary care doctors. Which specialty you search for depends primarily on your age:
  • Adults see internal medicine doctors (also called "internists").
  • Babies, children, and teenagers see pediatricians.
  • Seniors see geriatricians.
  • Anyone can see a family medicine doctor.

Primary care doctors see people for check-ups, physical exams, or routine bloodwork. They also help people with chronic illnesses manage their conditions. Primary care doctors are very important. If you haven’t seen a doctor in a while, you will most likely start with a primary care doctor. If you have medical problems or concerns, your primary care doctor can diagnose you and refer you to the right specialist for further consultation.
