    A primary (care) doctor can be a family doctor, an internist, a pediatrician or any type of specialty doctor that you select. It is the doctor that you select to see first whenever you have an illness.

    ** I live in the US for over 18 years and I have to select a primary doctor for myself and one for my kids. I choose an OB/GYN for myself and a pediatrician for my kids.

    By the way, a family doctor is a doctor who takes care of the whole family. Family doctors create caring relationships with patients and their families.
