"We have been with Dr. Coker for the past three years now. She is the primary doctor for both myself, my husband, and all six of my children. She, the nurses, and entire staff are wonderful. She ALWAYS takes the time to listen to each and every concern and she is great with my children (and we have two of our children with special medical needs). I couldn't ask for a better family doctor and would HIGHLY recommend her!"
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.
