Choosing the Right Primary Care Doctor: We Make It Easy
Choosing the right primary care doctor is an important decision — it’s a partnership for lifelong health. There are different types of primary care providers, including:
- Family practice – Provide care to the whole family, from pediatrics to senior care.
- Internal medicine – Provide care to adults and seniors.
- Pediatrics – Provide care to infants, children and adolescents.
