Primary Care

Akron General believes that wellness is medicine. One of the first steps toward wellness starts with getting a primary care doctor. He or she can be your best health champion and guide.

Primary care doctors are typically the first medical point of contact for patients, helping to manage your overall health, diagnose new illnesses and manage chronic diseases. Within primary care are two types of doctors. Family medicine doctors treat patients of all ages, while internal medicine doctors primarily treat adults. Should you need specialized care, your primary care doctor can refer you to a specialist who will work collaboratively with your doctor to ensure that you receive the best possible care.

Also, as your health advocate, your primary care doctor can help outline important health screenings and preventive measures that will keep you well. Akron General has a network of primary care doctors who are waiting to become your healthcare partner – use our Find A Doctor tool to find your doctor today.
