Having a primary care provider you like and trust can make a huge difference to your health. If you have a doctor you enjoy visiting, you are more likely to come to that provider with even the simplest of questions or health concerns. Also, if you see a doctor who is not only highly experienced but also respectful of your perspective, needs, and desires, you will likely to be happier with your health care plan – and be more likely to follow it. It’s much easier – and less costly – to address a medical issue when it’s identified early on, rather than when it’s gotten worse or even spread.
At Korunda Medical Institute in southwest Florida, we take pride in delivering primary medical care of the highest quality, in a comfortable environment built on trust and mutual respect. The comprehensive healthcare we provide includes the care and treatment of almost any ailment or issue imaginable.
Primary Care vs. Family Medicine vs. Internal Medicine
So, what is the difference among these terms? You’ve likely heard physicians describe themselves as either a “primary care,” “family medicine,” or “internal medicine” provider.
Primary care describes physicians and other healthcare providers trained and experienced in addressing the widest possible range of health concerns. Your primary care provider (PCP) is typically the first doctor you see when you have a new symptom or health concern. Some insurance plans even require that you visit your PCP first, before seeing a medical specialist.
The following are different types of primary care providers:
- Family medicine providers are those whose experience and training allow them to treat patients of all ages, from children to adults or seniors.
- Internal medicine providers are those who focus their care on the treatment of illnesses and diseases affecting adults.
At Korunda Medical Institute, we offer quality primary care services to people of all ages. Our providers include both family medicine doctors and an internal medicine physician.
