    FAQs

    Primary Care

    What is a primary care physician?

    A primary care physician is a medical doctor trained to diagnose, treate, and prevent a wide array of diseases in patients of all ages and backgrounds. Primary care physicians conduct checkups, offer medical advice, and provide medical care to the general population, and offer supplemental care with immunizations, vaccinations, and chronic condition management. Primary care doctors are sometimes referred to as family doctors.

    Sesame offers both in-person and video visits with real, quality primary care physicians who treat patients in New York. Top-rated healthcare providers on Sesame can diagnose and treat conditions such as asthma, UTIs, fevers, sinus infections and more.

    What do primary care physicians do?

    Primary care physicians (PCPs) can diagnose, treat, and help prevent a variety of acute and chronic conditions, including:

    Check-ups & Screenings

    PCPs can provide the following routine check up and diagnostic services

    • Blood pressure screening

    • Heartbeat monitoring (EKGs)

    • Lung tests (spirometry)

    • Cancer screenings (such as for breast cancer, testicular cancer, colorectal cancer, and prostate cancer)

    • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

    • Development disorder testing

    Illness and injury care

    Primary care physicians can help treat minor injuries and common illnesses, including:

    • Common cold

    • Flu

    • Asthma

    • Migraines

    • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)

    • Yeast infections

    • Rashes

    • Broken bone treatment (casting, splints, braces)

    Preventative care and general wellness

    Primary care physicians can play a key role in preventative care, general wellness, and disease prevention for a range of acute and chronic conditions. A primary care physician can offer medical advice, treat chronic conditions and injury, or refer you to a specialized doctor for further care, if needed.

    What's the difference between a PCP and a specialist?

    Primary care physicians (PCPs) are doctors trained to be your first point of entry into the health care system. In most cases, PCPs have experience and expertise treating a range of acute and chronic conditions, as well as performing routine check-ups, specialty screenings, and general care services.

    Primary care remains one of the most popular fields for doctors and allows doctors and patients to develop close relationships. Primary care physicians can specialize in different medical fields, although most PCPs treat a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, injuries, and illnesses.

    Specialists are doctors with advanced training in a particular field, like cancer or women's health. This includes:

    • Family medicine doctor: Family medicine doctors can treat a number of conditions, illnesses, and injuries in patients ranging from children to geriatric patients. Family medicine doctors may receive continued training in pediatrics and obstetrics to be able to treat children, and women’s health conditions.

    • Internists: Internists specialize in internal medicine for adults. Internists specialize in treating conditions such as asthma, heart disease, diabetes, lung disease, and hypertension.

    • Pediatricians: Pediatricians are doctors who specialize in pediatric medicine, or the care of infants and children. Pediatricians can do check-ups for children, provide immunizations, diagnose conditions and illnesses, and prescribe medication.

    • Obstetricians/gynecologists: Obstetrician/ gynecologists (OB-GYNs) are specially trained to treat and care for conditions related to women’s health. OB-GYNs help with fertility, childbirth, and issues specifically relating to the health of female reproductive organs.

    Sesame offers personalized, quality care with doctors and specialists who treat patients in New York. From women’s health to family medicine, doctors on Sesame can provide care through in-person or video visits at prices up to 60% less than what you’ll find anywhere else.

    What does a primary care physician check for during a routine check-up?

    Depending on your medical history, your primary care physician may test or screen for a number of conditions during a visit or routine check-up. These includes:

    • Heart disease

    • High blood pressure (hypertension)

    • Cancers (such as skin cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer, colorectal cancer, and testicular cancer)

    • Diabetes

    • Obesity

    • Sexually transmitted infections (STIs)

    • Lung health

    • Depression and anxiety

    Is a primary care doctor the same as a GP?

    People often use the terms "general practitioner," "internist," and "primary care physician" interchangeably, but there are differences between the three. Primary care physicians have extensive training specializing in all-encompassing care and may have completed residencies in family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, and more. General practitioners (GPs) are trained to treat adults, adolescents, and children.

    What conditions can a primary care physician treat?

    Primary care physicians have extensive experience diagnosing, treating, and managing a range of acute and chronic conditions for patients of all ages, including:

    • Cold, flu, and other acute illnesses
    • UTIs and other vaginal infections
    • Rashes, warts, moles, and other skin conditions
    • Erectile dysfunction (ED) or premature ejaculation (PE)
    • Diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2)
    • High blood pressure
    • High cholesterol
    • Developmental disorders
    • Depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions
