"I had a follow up appointment for what Nextcare had advised was a broken foot. Dr Johnston staff was really nice, and when she made it to my room for follow up handed her the CD that carried the Xrays. She stated that she could not get it open and then looked at my foot and said appears to be broken toe (also Nextcare mixed up the findings). I showed her the medication I was given (perc) and she stared at me just stating that I shouldn't be taking it to "get stoned". She didn't do an additional XRay to confirm what was actually broken, she didn't give me follow up care instructions for my foot, nor did she tell me the healing process or what to expect, only that I wouldn't need surgery. It was fast appointment considering we didn't talk about much then listed above. I have since found another doctor office who would provide the care I needed. "
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.
