Difference between family medicine and internal medicine

A primary care provider can teach you ways to stay healthy, treat you when you are sick and help you get advanced care when you need it.
Different types of primary care providers offer varied services and areas of specialization. Your stage of life and medical needs help you determine which type is right for you.
