What’s The Difference Between Family Medicine, Internal Medicine and Primary Care?
Doctors that practice family medicine, internal medicine and primary care medicine are different in terms of the age of the patients they care for.
Family medicine physicians are both pediatricians and internal medicine doctors, caring for both children and adults. Internal medicine physicians care for adults only. Primary care physicians fall into either one of the above categories, or they can be pediatricians.
