Dr Prahlad Gadhavi is a very knowledgeable and dedicated doctor. I went to see him for an illness that was potentially urgent. After our appt he made himself available on the phone to clearly provide the next steps. I ended going to ER on Saturday and Dr. Gadhavi made himself available to correspond to the staff members of the hospital. Could not recommend more.

I really enjoyed my visit at Dr. Pollak. I look forward to going back again. They warn you about the wait when you sign up. It wasn't that bad. He was very friendly and welcoming.

Other than the 45 minute wait, everything else was very pleasant. The actual physical was extremely efficient once I was actually seen.

The office was pretty efficient, you move from 1 thing to another. I checked in, got there early and was taken in early. Afterwards I got my vitals and EKG done with medical assistant, that went quickly. Then I had my visit with Dr Peters- only took a few minutes, didn't say much but I was there just for a routine physical. Then went upstairs to do bloodwork. Overall, pretty efficient and quick service.

Dr asked a lot of questions, which I totally liked. As a first time patient I didn't feel rushed. I was able to truly and in-depth explain what I've been feeling and going through. He appeared genuinely concerned. I had good vibes from him. We'lo see how the next few visits go. I'm totally optimistic

Jersey City Primary Care Doctors

Primary care physicians, commonly known as PCPs, are trained in providing the first point of care for people with undiagnosed health issues not limited to any one organ or specialty. They are trained in health promotion, disease prevention, counseling, patient education and management of both acute and chronic illnesses. Often, they collaborate with another specialist by way of referrals and consultations to provide care to patients. They tend to encourage effective communication with their patients to make them partners in their health management. They can either hold a doctor of medicine (MD) or doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO) degree as their medical degrees, and they usually pursue a postgraduate residency in internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics or gynecology.

Internist vs. family physician

  • Both internists and family physicians are responsible for providing primary care to their patients, however, there are some crucial differences between these two types of doctors. Knowing this distinction can help you choose the right doctor for your healthcare needs.
  • A key differentiator between the two is the type of patients both doctors choose to see. Internists tend to focus on diseases affecting adults, while a family physician is skilled at addressing issues faced by all of your family members, including children.
  • Another difference is in the duties that both of these types of practitioners carry out. Though not a rule, generally internists tend to focus on issues having greater complexity when compared to family physicians. While internists provide in-patient care in hospital settings or their clinics, family physicians are more likely to focus on preventative care.
