Top Family Physician Near Me, Burbank CA
A primary care doctor, or physician, is someone who your family can depend on to help you manage your overall health and well-being. A practitioner has had years of extensive medical education and training – this includes a specialized area in family medicine for children under 18 years old; pediatric care for patients who are 1 year of age through 11; general practice where physicians have an interest in all areas including pediatrics and geriatrics; internal medicine which focuses on diagnosis, treatment, prevention and wellness across the life span.
The practitioners’ familiarity with you allows them to monitor changes or healthcare concerns that may arise early on before developing into something serious. If a condition were to develop they would refer you back to their office while continuing quality healthcare by managing not just one condition but also any other health issues that may be present at the time as well as communicating between themselves (the specialist) about your wellbeing too!
Family doctors. These physicians treat patients of all ages. They are trained in adult medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics, geriatric medicine, and musculoskeletal care. In a typical family medical practice, around 10 to 15 percent of the patients are children.
Internists. Doctors who practice internal medicine specialize in treating adults. Like family doctors, they treat many acute and chronic conditions. Therefore, they receive training in many different fields, including endocrinology, rheumatology, neurology, orthopedics, geriatrics, and rehabilitation.
