Frequently Asked Questions
Why is primary care important?
Primary care doctors are your first point of contact for any concerns you have regarding your health or overall wellness. By making routine visits to a primary care provider or general practitioner, you establish a thorough medical history, which is imperative for disease prevention. Physicians can simply do their job better when they have a deeper understanding of the patient and their body — in other words, primary care is personalized care.
What is an internal medicine doctor?
Internal medicine doctors are essentially primary care doctors who focus strictly on providing care to adults. They specialize in the practice of disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment — just like physicians who practice family medicine — but can only provide care to adult members of the family.
What is the difference between family medicine and internal medicine?
A physician who practices family medicine provides similar services to an internal medicine doctor, such as acute disease treatment, however, they are qualified to provide care for the entire family. In other words, an internal medicine doctor generally cannot provide care to children and infants, as they specialize in caring for the bodies of mature adults.
How often should you go to the doctor?
The answer to this question may vary depending on a variety of factors such as your age and medical history. But generally speaking, you should see a primary care doctor at least once a year if you don’t have any health conditions that require you to visit more frequently. Healthy children may require more than one visit per year because their immune systems are still developing, and you want to be able to catch any health concerns early, before they get worse.
