Your primary care physician (PCP) may be an internist or a family medicine doctor

Inova primary care physicians (PCPs, also known as primary care doctors) are either internists or family medicine doctors. Both types of PCPs focus on health promotion, disease prevention, patient education and counseling, and treatment of acute and chronic medical conditions, but there are also important differences between the two.

Family medicine doctor

Family medicine practitioners can treat the entire family – they focus on preventing, diagnosing, and treating disease in children as well as adults.


Internists focus on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease that affect adults only.
