Dr. Suarez was the most thorough and explanatory doctor I’ve ever been to. He was very welcoming and kind of made me feel at ease right away. I loved how he explained every one of my concerns and didn’t make me feel awkward for having them. Dr. Suarez is now my PCP and I fully recommend him. He is also amazing at OMT.

I'm so happy I found Dr. Galstian! She took all my concerns seriously and didn't rush the appointment. She gave great advice on how I can change certain habits vs. trying to prescribe me something as a "quick solve". Lastly, I'm shopping for new insurance and she was very understanding of that. I saw her for a physical and she recommended that I come back for blood work once my insurance is setup. Overall, I'm impressed with her and her staff members. 100% recommend.

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.
