What is a primary care physician?
A primary care physician is a doctor of medicine or osteopathy who specializes in family medicine, pediatric care, internal medicine, or senior health. In addition, our physician assistants and nurse practitioners are part of your primary care team.
Your partner in health
Your primary care provider is the person you choose to be your partner in health—be it for regular, preventive care or as your first contact for any medical problem that may arise. Your primary care physician also coordinates any other care you need, such as a visit to a specialist or hospitalization.
Your primary care provider can diagnose and treat many

When it can’t wait for your provider
If you have suffered a serious injury or have symptoms of a serious condition such as chest pains, difficulty breathing, severe abdominal pain, or have a possible emergency, you need to seek emergency care or call 911 right away.
Family medicine vs. internal medicine
A family physician is trained to treat the health care needs of men, women and children of all ages throughout their lives. Family physicians provide a wide range of health services, including preventive care, obstetrics, routine gynecological care and pediatric services, as well as care for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
Internal medicine physicians, also known as internists, are trained specifically to care for adults 18 and older. This includes both healthy individuals as well as those who have complex medical issues, such as heart disease.
