Choosing the right doctor in Manhattan, NYC – everything you need to know

Step 1 – Why see a doctor?
Annual Checkup
To test for possible conditions/ diseases
To review specific symptoms you have

Step 2 – Now that I know something may be wrong, what kind of doctor should I see? Find either a PCP or a Specialist:

PCP: The wisest advice is to always first go to your Primary Care Physician and if necessary, s/he will make a referral to a specialist in the area of concern.
Specialist: If you feel that you need more than the attention of your Primary Care Physician, you will likely need to seek the help of a specialist
