The difference between Family Medicine and Internal Medicine

Primary Care Physicians fall into one of two categories: Family Medicine Doctors and Internal Medicine Doctors.

• A Pediatrician cares for children.

• An Internal Medicine Physician cares for adults.

• A Family Practitioner is a Pediatrician and Internist combined into one specialty and cares for both children and adults.

A Family Physician sees adults and children and addresses many women’s health issues. Many Family Physicians see the entire family and they kind of grow with the whole family.

Regardless of your age, it’s important to your health that you develop a relationship with a Primary Care Physician.

Family Practitioners can take care of individual adult health needs regardless of family status. As an adult, you have two good options: An Internal Medicine Practitioner, or a Family Practitioner trained in adult health needs.

If you want a good adult Primary Care Physician, you can see a Family Physician who is trained to take care of adults or you can see an Internal Medicine Physician, who also takes care of adults.


Call (406) 265-5408 to schedule a check-up, prenatal visit, and when you’re not feeling well. We care about you and your family.
