"Dr Doolittle is very special. He is the first Dr I have completely trusted and felt I could open up completely with. I appreciate him because he listens to what I'm saying and gives you back his honest opinion and helps you to move forward in your situation. I'm extremely upset as AETNA & SUTTER cut ties so now I'm forced to find another Dr. I can only hope to find another special Dr., Like Dr Doolittle. "

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.
