"Dr Stellman has been excellent with my son and more than helpful with any questions or concerns I have ever had. I started taking my son there when he was around 2 and Dr Stellman discovered on the first visit that he had a heart murmur. How the other Dr before never caught it I have no idea, but Dr Stellman was great at keeping me calm and informed about it. He sent us to the right people to have everything checked out. He's a wonderful Dr. "
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.
