A Primary Care physician is a practitioner who provides both initial evaluation and screening for a person with an undiagnosed health condition along with continuing care of a whole spectrum of various medical conditions. Often referred to as General Practitioner or Family Practitioner, Primary care can also include internal medicine, pediatrics and gynecological specialties. Their basic scope of practice includes basic diagnosis and the diagnosis and treatment of common illnesses and conditions. Primary Care physicians are trained in basic medical testing including the interpretation of results of blood and urine testing, electrocardiograms, x-rays, along with other screening tests and immunizations. A Primary Care physician is usually the first medical practitioner to come in contact with a patient and usually is most effectively for overseeing the overall care and treatment of a patient.
