Find a doctor

What type of doctor should I choose for primary care?

To find the right doctor, begin your search by considering the differences between primary care and specialty care. The physician you decide to see will vary depending on your medical needs.

Our approach isn’t one-size-fits-all. We spend more time with our patients than other primary care physicians would to ensure you get the care you need.

Our patient relations managers help guide you through the insurance process and ensure you get the most out of your insurance benefits.

Call us with questions for your doctor, to arrange prescription refills or to book your next appointment.

What is the difference between a general physician and a primary care doctor?

Primary care physicians (PCPs) cover a majority of your healthcare needs such as preventative care, maintaining current health, and detecting long and short-term illnesses. Examples of primary care fields are pediatrics, internal medicine, and general practice.

Specialty care doctors have received additional training in a specific area of medicine. These clinics are recommended for patients seeking specialized care such as skin treatment from a dermatologist or mental health diagnosis from a psychiatrist.

A general physician is a doctor that is trained to treat the whole body and can work with patients of all ages. The difference between a general physician and a primary care doctor is the level of familiarity between doctors and patients. This is because PCPs are often the first doctor you see when you have a short-term illness, need a physical exam, or have questions about your personal health — resulting in a deeper knowledge of your medical history. 

There are a few different types of primary care practices that are designed to meet you and your family’s needs. Primary care includes pediatricians, geriatricians, gynecologists, family practitioners, internists, nurse practitioners, and physicians assistants.
