A primary care physician is concerned with the total health care of the
individual and the family and is trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of ailments in patients of all ages. The primary care
physician receives a broad range of training that includes internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, psychiatry, and geriatrics. Special emphasis is placed on prevention and the primary care of entire families.
The scope of primary care encompasses all ages, both sexes, each
organ system, and every disease entity. These specialists, because of their background and interactions with the family, are best qualified to serve as each patient's “gatekeeper” to all health-related matters, including the appropriate use of other specialists, consultants, health services, and community resources.
