"i have seen dr rone for more than 20 yrs .. i have 3 rare diseases that were difficult to diagnos .. he sent me to other docs who had specialties in my issues & 3 yrs ago my health issues were diagnosed because dr rone never gave up in sending me to someone who had more knowledge of my specific issues .. that’s what internests do .. they send you where you need to go if the severity of a problem is beyond their scope .. he is an excellent doctor who treated my mother, treats me & several other members of my family .. i am very grateful for what he has done for me & my family"
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.
