Do I need a primary care physician?
The simple answer is yes. Primary care providers manage day-to-day health needs. And a long-term relationship with a PCP keeps you healthier and lowers medical costs. A PCP can teach you ways to stay healthy, treat you when you’re sick and help you get more advanced care when you need it.
What is a doctor of Internal Medicine
Physicians who practice Internal Medicine are often called “Internists.” LIMA’s Internists are physicians who specialize in treating adults, those 18 years and older. They provide care for acute problems such as colds, and injuries and follow up on complex medical problems along with routine health care examinations and guidance for disease prevention.

What should I look for in a family doctor?
There are a variety of factors that should be evaluated when it comes to choosing a doctor in order to make a smart decision. Here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a family doctor:
Accessibility and Convenience — Is the provider located close to your work or home, or do you mind driving out of your way for your appointments? Another important thing to consider is if your health needs require you to have close access to your physician. One should also try to see if there are any conflicts in scheduling. If the doctor’s office is only open during the day when you’re at work, it could be difficult to book an appointment. Make sure the doctor is available when you are.
Board Certification — Another consideration in your selection of a doctor may be their board certification status, which is easy to check online. Unlike a medical license, board certification is a voluntary process and it establishes a physician’s commitment to go above and beyond and continually develop their healthcare and medical knowledge.
Experience — All patients should consider the experience of potential physicians. If you are looking to build a long-term doctor-patient relationship, you may want to select a physician who is not close to retirement. You may feel more at ease selecting a physician who has several years of experience, or you may prefer going with a doctor who newly graduated med school and is eager to help. There is no right or wrong answer here, and your decision will depend on your personal preferences.
Experience Treating Your Conditions — If you or a family member have an existing medical condition, such as diabetes, arthritis, or obesity, you may feel the need to take special consideration in choosing a doctor. For these and other common conditions, seek out a primary care physician who has direct experience in that area.
Practice Style and Patient Experience — Another aspect of your health care that you should consider are the practice styles of a physician, as some physicians practice in a more personable manner while others are very formal. Depending on what you’re looking for, their practice style could change your decision. You may also want to look into other aspects of the care experience, such as reviews on staff courtesy or wait times at the doctor’s office.
