Selecting a Primary Care Provider (PCP) at Personal Physician Care
Although we don’t require our patients to pick a PCP and you can see any provider we have on staff, PPC strongly recommends finding a practitioner on staff that you feel comfortable with.
Your Personal Physician Care PCP is your first point of contact for all health care needs, acting as your advocate, ally, and advisor. We’ll help you make the most informed decisions possible have thoroughly researched the surrounding area to ensure an effective referral should you ever require a specialty consultation.
You can always switch to another practitioner -- no questions asked. And if you have an emergency and your PCP is unavailable to see the same-day, we have numerous other practitioners in the office who can see you right away and then a follow-up can be made with your PCP to review any results, diagnoses, or lab work.
What Is The Difference Between Family Medicine And Internal Medicine?
The majority of Personal Physician Care's general practitioners, including our doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, have a focus in either family medicine or internal medicine.
Family medicine providers, otherwise known as family practitioners, are considered to have the widest set of primary care skills, treating patients at every stage of life. They are trained to treat patients from birth through adulthood, and into the elderly years.
Internal medicine doctors, otherwise known as internists, focus primarily on adult and elderly patients, and are most comfortable seeing patients age 18 and older. Their training emphasizes the management of chronic, complex, or severe illnesses, particularly for patients who require hospitalization.
