Finding the right care for you and your family
Many of us think about finding a doctor when we're not feeling well. But, it's important to have a primary care provider before then so you can develop a relationship that can help keep you healthier. As a partner in your long-term health, your primary care provider gets to know you, your medical history and health goals and will help manage your overall health.
But who should you see for your primary care? Gundersen has three types of primary care departments:
- Family Medicine sees both children and adults so they can provide care for your entire family. They provide a full spectrum of primary care including annual exams, immunizations, preventive care and the treatment of illnesses and chronic conditions. Many provide prenatal care and deliver babies.
- Pediatrics specializes in caring for children from birth through the teenage years. Pediatrics provides preventive care services including well-child visits, immunizations and physicals. They also care for a wide range of illnesses and chronic health conditions.
- Internal Medicine cares for patients ages 18 and older. They provide a complete range of general internal medical care, including the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses. They are experts at treating patients with complex medical problems.
