"I went to him multiple times with various symptoms varying from constipation to muscle cramps and even rapid weight loss..The only thing he did was give me a laxative and referrals because he seems to not want to spend more than 5 minutes with you. Finally after severe abdominal pain and a trip to the ER,the Doctor at the hospital was the one to tell me I had all the symptoms of fibromyalgia. This doctor is just a order a test and run away type of guy with zero compassion or interest in his patients.Maybe he should have been a mortician.That way he wouldn't feel so bothered or annoyed by the clientele."
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.
