Primary care doctors provide health care for every stage of life for your entire family. Your primary care doctor helps you manage every aspect of your health care – from routine care and preventing disease, to helping you manage chronic conditions and maintaining good overall health. And, if you have a condition that requires specialty care, your primary care team can help coordinate your care among your multiple providers to simplify health care for you and your family.
Primary care doctors specialize in a few different areas:
- Internal medicine doctors (internists) treat adults
- Family medicine doctors treat people of all ages
- Pediatricians treat children and adolescents
