A Primary Care Provider or "PCP" is an acronym used to describe a primary health care provider. PCPs may specialize by age group or may offer care for all members of the family. The role of a PCP is to monitor a patient's general health, address medical concerns directly at the clinic office, and refer patients to specialists and surgeons when necessary.
- Family medicine practitioners provide continuing and comprehensive healthcare for everyone in the family: babies, toddlers, teens, adults, and the elderly. Family medicine practitioners with obstetrics have additional training to care for pregnant women.
- Internal medicine specialists provide primary care to adults.
- Pediatricians focus specifically on child care and preventive children’s health.
- Gerontologists are internal medicine providers who specialize in geriatrics, focussing on the care of older patients.
