Brooklyn Primary Care Doctors

A primary care physician (PCP) is the initial point of contact for a patient’s healthcare. Patients’ PCPs usually remain constant over the years, helping them maintain their general health. PCPs usually team up with surgeons and other specialists to provide overall care. A primary care doctor keeps track of your entire medical history, including test results. This enables them to provide comprehensive care to patients. Screening procedures  , including cancer screenings, and immunizations such as flu shots are among the reasons for a routine PCP visit for both men and women. In many cases, PCPs can refer patients to other specialists like cardiologists and oncologists. After completing medical school, a residency is required to specialize in any of the following primary care fields: internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics or gynecology.

Internal medicine vs. family medicine

Having trouble distinguishing between internists and family physicians? Here are some key factors that sets them apart: While both are primary care providers, they differ in terms of skill set, demographics and other things. The primary difference between the two lies in their training and clinical approach. Another significant differentiating factor lies within their patient demographics: Internists mainly treat adults, while family physicians treat members of the entire family.


Visit the American College of Physicians’ website for more information on internal medicine and family medicine doctors.
