When you have a healthcare need a primary care physician should be your
first stop. Primary care doctors can handle a wide range of medical problems
like the basic cold or flu to chronic disease management such as diabetes
and asthma. They can also help with prevention including wellness checkups
and immunizations. Think of your primary care doctor as the center of
a wheel – they will help manage your daily healthcare needs and
will coordinate with specialists if you need further care.
Family Medicine or Internal Medicine?
At Baton Rouge General Physicians, our doctors are board certified in Family
Medicine and Internal Medicine. The biggest difference in selecting which
type of primary care doctor to see has to do with age. Family medicine
physicians treat children and adults while internal medicine doctors (or
internists) care for adults over the age of 18.
