Primary Care is one of many important medical practice areas well-represented on Georgetown Hospital System's medical staffs. Primary Care physicians offer comprehensive care in managing your health care needs and specialize in the areas of family medicine, internal medicine and/or pediatrics. Family Medicine focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide variety of ailments. Internal Medicine deals with the long term, comprehensive management of both common and complex medical illnesses of adolescents, adults, and the elderly. Pediatric care encompasses a broad spectrum of health services ranging from preventive healthcare to the diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic diseases of children from birth to young adulthood.
Primary Care practices play key roles in the overall health of the community, since they represent a critical initial point of access to care. Establishing a relationship with a Primary Care physician of your choice is important to your health. You should develop that relationship well in advance of any emergency care needs so that your Primary Care physician will be familiar with your overall health status and circumstances. Primary Care practices, including physicians who have opted to be members of Georgetown Hospital system's medical staffs, are conveniently located throughout Georgetown, Horry and surrounding counties.
