"Dr. Banerjee took excellent care of my geriatric father. He had multiple health issues including dementia, and lived in a closed unit in a nursing facility. Other health providers made assumptions about what he could understand; Dr. Banerjee never did. She treated him with great concern, and acknowledged him with dignity. Our family is forever thankful."

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.
