Putting your needs first

Your primary care physician is not just about convenience, but fundamental to your overall health and wellness because they have invaluable insight into your unique needs. People who have an ongoing relationship with a primary care physician, such as an internist or family medicine physician, have better overall health outcomes, lower death rates and lower total costs of care.

At Optum, many of our primary care doctors are part of our Internal Medicine department, or family medicine specialists. 

Internists are part of a medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of internal diseases. They offer:

  • Preventive care
  • Immunizations (routine/travel-related)
  • Physical exams and evaluations
  • Management of chronic conditions
  • Management of complex disorders
  • Mental health evaluations
  • Treatment of infectious diseases
  • Senior care
  • Adolescent and young adult medicine

Family medicine doctors have a similar background as internists, but with an additional focus on pediatric and family care. Learn more about the Optum Internal Medicine Department.
