For sick visits, physicals and regular health screenings, a primary care provider will be your first point of contact. At The Medical Center of Aurora, we have several types of primary care providers with offices located throughout the south Denver metro area.
|Doctor Type||Area of Specialty|
|Family Medicine Specialists||General medical care for both adults and children|
|Geriatric Medicine Specialists||General medical care for adults age 65 and older|
|Internal Medicine Specialists or Internists||Providers who treat only adults (age 18 and older)|
|Obstetricians/Gynecologists or OB/GYNs||Care of conditions of the female reproductive system for teens and adults|
|Pediatricians||General medical care for children of all ages|
In many cases, you will see your primary care provider most often and they will refer you to specialists, as needed. Depending on the type of health insurance you have, you may need a referral from your primary care provider before you can see a specialty doctor, such as a neurologist or dermatologist.
