"I can’t say enough good things about the care doctor Pfau provides to me and my family. She is kind, smart, compassionate, and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure the best care is provided. Dr. Pfau is easy to talk to, understanding, and always listens. I am so thankful to have met such a wonderful doctor and grateful for the care she provides to me as well as my family members. "
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.
