Primary Care

 

Primary care physicians are your partners in health. They’re called your family physician, primary care provider or PCP - they’re YOUR doctor. They know you, and can help diagnose, treat and prevent problems, helping you stay healthy. Different types of primary care providers are described below.

Pediatricians are dedicated to caring for the unique needs of children from birth to age 18, partnering with parents to ensure children’s health, safety and proper development.

Family medicine doctors are specially trained in all aspects of family medicine, including pediatric, adolescent, adult and geriatric care. Some of our physicians also practice obstetrics, caring for mothers and babies during and after pregnancy.

Internal medicine doctors provide a wide range of primary health care services for adults, including physical examinations, gynecologic exams, preventive screenings, immunizations, urgent care for medical conditions, routine follow-ups and referrals to specialists when appropriate. Internists are also skilled in managing chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol problems and heart disease.

Physicians who specialize in caring for older adults are often called geriatricians. They focus on the unique health needs related to aging, and also promote healthy aging by improving the quality of health care services for older adults through education and excellent patient care.
