Denver family medicine and primary care physicians
Denver’s own Presbyterian/St. Luke’s’ primary care doctors pride themselves on taking the time to get to know their patients and providing personalized care plans that best meet your health needs. Often considered to be your personal doctor, primary care physicians are most familiar with your health history and help you make optimal decisions for your health.
In partnership with you, they ensure you get recommended medical screenings and health risk assessments, provide preventive care and teach healthy lifestyle choices, help you get referrals to medical specialists when necessary and evaluate the urgency of your medical problems and direct you to the best place for care if necessary.
Choosing a primary care physician
As your primary partner in health, it’s important to choose a physician who will offer you an ongoing, trusting relationship and who is best suited to your individual needs and situation. Primary care physicians provide a broad, yet in-depth spectrum of care, and there are many types of doctors to choose from:
- Family medicine doctors provide care for individuals across their life span, from childhood to adulthood. Their scope of practice may include obstetrics and minor surgery.
- Internists provide care for adults of all ages for many different medical problems and disease prevention. They are often patients’ first point of contact when discussing cancer screenings.
- Pediatricians are caregivers for newborns, infants, children and adolescents. Their scope of practice includes care for mental and physical childhood illnesses.
- Obstetricians/gynecologists, or OBGYNs as they are commonly referred to as provide care for conditions of the female reproductive system for teens and adults. OBGYNs are trained to treat infections, screen for cancers and perform surgeries when necessary on a female’s reproductive organs while also being the touchpoint individuals for family planning and the delivery of newborns.
- Geriatric medicine, or senior health specialists provide care for adults age 65 and older. Geriatricians are doctors trained to identify, treat and when possible prevent disability and disease for aging individuals.
