Primary care providers (PCP) and family doctors are two primary types of medical professionals. But what is the difference between a PCP and your family doctor?
A PCP is a general practitioner who provides primary care to patients. This means they are responsible for providing routine checkups, diagnosing and treating common illnesses, prescribing medications, and can refer patients to specialists if necessary.
A family doctor is a specialist in primary care who provides comprehensive health care services to their patients and their families. They typically offer preventive care, diagnosis and treatment of common illnesses, and management of chronic conditions. They may also provide vaccinations and prenatal care.
