It's important to choose a Primary Care doctor

What specialties are considered Primary Care?

  • Family Medicine doctors care for patients from birth through end of life. They are trained to treat every family member, and have studied all the organ systems and body regions, which means they are capable of performing a wide variety of medical and surgical services.
  • Internal/Adult Medicine doctors deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases in adult patients (anyone over 18 years of age). An internal medicine doctor’s in-depth understanding of multiple conditions and the ways in which they interact is crucial as people age and may experience complex medical issues. 
  • Pediatric & Adolescent Medicine doctors care for infants, toddlers, and adolescents through young adulthood. They take special interest in vaccinations and education regarding wellness and safety.
  • Obstetrics & Gynecology doctors specialize in women's health. They focus on preventative care, pregnancy care, and reproductive, breast, and sexual health. They may also focus on specific concerns such as heavy periods, infertility, and menopause.
What does a Primary Care doctor do?
A primary care doctor recommends screening tests that detect disease depending on your age, health status, and family history. He or she encourages you to make positive changes in your lifestyle to maximize good health, and in the event of disease or serious illness will refer you to a specialist for more focused care.

Why is it important to have a Primary Care doctor?
A primary care doctor not only gets to know your personal health history, he or she gets to know you, your family, your life situation, health goals, and preferences. He or she will be the doctor other health care providers will call for information if you are injured or hospitalized.


Primary Care you deserve from the doctors you know and trust.
