Primary CarePrimary Care providers fall into two complementary categories, Family Medicine and Internal Medicine. We describe the differences, below.
Family MedicineYour Wellstar Family Medicine physician is your doctor for life — and living. Our Family Medicine practices provide comprehensive, coordinated care that focuses on the holistic wellness of your health journey from birth onward. Come to see us when you feel under the weather or when a nagging concern keeps you up at night. We can help get to the bottom of what’s bothering you, prescribe the appropriate medication and, when necessary, connect you with a specialist for further care and peace of mind. At Wellstar, your family’s total good health is always our priority. Find Your Family Medicine Physician
Internal MedicineWellstar Internal Medicine is advanced, compassionate healthcare for adults, typically ages 18 and older. Our Internal Medicine physicians know the conditions and concerns you may face, and we meet your needs with experience and insight. We can help you manage chronic conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease, as well as provide caring assistance with beneficial behavioral changes like smoking cessation. Patients with depression or anxiety can get the support they need to feel better. Your Wellstar Internal Medicine doctor cares about your overall well-being and knows how to help you live your healthiest life every day. Find Your Internal Medicine Physician

Pediatric CareYou always want the best for your children. Our Wellstar Pediatric Care physicians understand that, and they want the same. We want to ensure every child gets the healthcare and support they need to thrive at each stage of their growth. We do this by providing pediatric wellness check-ups and immunizations, as well as keeping a close eye on anything that seems out of the ordinary for a developing child, including diagnosing and treating concerns like Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD). Your child benefits from a physician who makes them feel comfortable about visiting the doctor. Kids like to come to see us because we treat them with age-appropriate tools and technology, like kid-sized blood pressure cuffs and crutches that are just the right size. Compassionate care that’s kid-focused is what Wellstar Pediatrics is all about. Find a Pediatrician

Wellness Screenings at WellstarThe busier life becomes, the easier it is to put off taking good care of yourself. That’s why we make Wellstar wellness screenings easy, fast and convenient. To ensure your overall wellness, schedule a wellness screening appointment with your nearby Wellstar Primary Care physician at least once a year. For our Medicare patients, this is known as your Annual Wellness Visit. An annual screening takes a holistic look at all the aspects of your health that are important to check on regularly. Your doctor will talk with you, order tests and share information to help keep your health on the right track. As a result, you’ll learn how to maintain your health goals, and you’ll feel better knowing you’re taking the best care of yourself — because you deserve nothing less. At Wellstar, PeopleCare means preventative care that helps you stay healthy. Book Your Wellness Care Appointment Today
