According to a recent interview with Andy Fine, MD, primary care internal medicine doctors may be a better choice for adults for routine care than a general practitioner. While GPs are reliable choices for general medicine, they often have to rely on the opinions of internal medicine doctors to make complicated diagnoses. "Instead of going to a GP then being referred to an internist, many internal medicine doctors are now allowing patients to consider them as their primary care physicians, particularly adults who already have a medical history," notes Dr. Fine.
The term "primary care" is used to describe a doctor who is the first line of defense for patients and whom they often see without a referral. Andy Fine, MD, as seen at https://www.linkedin.com/pub/andy-fine-md-facp/10/a3/878
, has been practicing in Littleton, Colorado, for more than 15 years as a primary care internal medicine doctor. "I provide adult patients with primary care and can often diagnose complicated illnesses before a patient has to visit a specialist. In some cases, I can treat these illnesses. In other cases, I make a referral to a physician with whom I have a strong relationship and whom I trust to treat my patients."
Dr. Fine says that he also works diligently to develop a trust relationship with each of his own patients. "My patients are with me for the long-term, so I want them to be able to be honest with me about their lifestyles and their symptoms. I am also very concerned that they trust me to provide them with the care they need to support them in good health and to treat any conditions they may face."
