Where can I find out if a doctor is accepting new patients?
There are a few different ways to find out if a doctor is accepting new patients. One way is to call clinics directly to ask if the doctors practicing there are accepting new patients. However, calling each clinic to find out if they are accepting new patients may be more tedious or time-consuming than you are willing or able to give to the endeavor. As such, another way to find out what doctors in your area are accepting new patients is to ask friends, family, and co-workers if they have any recommendations or know of doctors that are accepting new patients.

What do doctors usually specialize in?
Since the human body is a complex organism with multiple processes, functions, and parts, there is a commensurate number of medical fields that doctors can specialize in! The list of medical specialties includes cardiology, psychiatry, rheumatology, endocrinology, and more. With that being said, most medical specialties are highly specific, so that they are more suited to individuals requiring single medical treatments and procedures as opposed to ongoing medical care.
As for medical fields geared towards providing patients with ongoing medical care, such specialties include family medicine, general practice, geriatric medicine, internal medicine, and pediatric medicine. At Primary Care 360, our various medical doctors specialize in family medicine, geriatric medicine, and internal medicine. With such specialties, we can provide the following services:
- Ankle-brachial index (ABI) testing for peripheral artery disease (PAD)
- Asthma and bronchitis treatment
- Casts, slings, and splints for dislocations, fractures, sprains, and strains
- Care for burns, bites, and stings
- Cold and flu treatment
- COVID-19 testing
- Diabetes management
- Digital X-ray services
- Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders treatment
- On-site laboratory
- Pain management services
- Pharmacy services, including prescription medication
- Physical exams, including annual physicals, Department of Transportation (DOT) physicals, geriatric physicals, pediatric physicals, pre-employment physicals, sports and school physicals, wellness visits for women, and worker’s compensation physicals
- Preventive care, including vaccinations
- Sutures and bandages for cuts and lacerations
- Tetanus shots
Can doctors accept a family as new patients?
That depends on the family and the doctor’s area of expertise! To that extent, a doctor specializing in family medicine has the requisite training to provide medical care to children, adults, and older adults. As such, if your family includes children and grandparents, a family doctor can provide excellent service to the whole family. In comparison, doctors who specialize in pediatric medicine are only qualified to see children and adolescents from the newborn stage to age 21, while internal medicine doctors are only qualified to treat adults.
How often do doctors accept new patients?
The frequency with which doctors accept new patients depends on several different factors, including the hours of operation and the amount of support staff available to the physician at the clinic. We welcome you to call us at Primary Care 360 if you would like to know how often our medical doctors accept new patients.
