The confusion arises due to the fact most of the patients seen through family physicians are adults. Often, while their kids are sick, mother and father take them to a pediatrician, a medical doctor who specializes in treating kids, rather than a general practitioner including a family doctor.
However, sometimes family physicians do treat kids. In fact, according to the American College of Physicians, 10-to-15 percent of family medication patients are kids. Family doctors may additionally see “tweens” or the ones in early adolescence. Internal medicine physicians only treat adults.
