I was just wondering if anyone out there knows if family care physicians provide counseling services? What other services would they provide? If you thought you had a cracked rib, would you go there or an urgent care facility? Thanks.

This might go in offtopic...but I wouldn't engage an MD for counseling, that's what counselors are for. .

As for cracked ribs, I don't think there's anything you can do about them so don't bother with urgent care. Just talk to your regular doc if it's bothering you too much. I've had two cracked ribs and didn't even bother.

Broken bones I'd go to the ER. Counseling services your family practitioner could certainly provide referrals. I go to mine for an annual checkup and if I ever suspect strep throat (my Achilles heel).

You have patient-doctor confidentiality with family care physicians but not the necessary training. So to answer your question they are not supposed to provide counseling services. Some can prescribe ADs but they typically refer or advise a consultation with a counselor or psychiatrist.

I would tend to recommend an urgent care center for cracked ribs, but that can depend on the severity. If you're in pain but it's not debilitating then you could probably go to your family care physician. However, I would still err on the side of caution. You can't go wrong with taking a suspected broken rib to an urgent care imho.

I'm just trying to get some information. It may seem off topic but it really isn't.

Did you have trauma to the chest? IF so, I'd start with the ER or urgent care, unless my PCP were in an office setting with a radiology department. I say this because chest Xray will likely be necessary.

I hope it's nothing serious--and that you are in a safe situation.

ETA: I forgot to address the counseling aspect. My PCP is a good listener, but not a counselor. He's very, very holistic--so he is willing to spend time talking. But while he's willing to address mental health issues, he's not a therapist. He is happy to make referrals, and pointed us to a really great IC and psychiatrist when my son crashed into depression after d-day. I picked my own IC, after researching docs in the area with specific foci of practice. By spending a lot of time thinking about the approach I wanted, and researching ICs equipped to offer this, I found a really great match. If I hadn't known how to do this, I would have asked my PCP for a referral.

Thank you all for your concern. I'm not injured, I'm merely gathering necessary information. I may have discovered the key to this all, but I still need more.

This certainly sounds interesting.

I don't know if this will help you or not, but this website has a description of what services a family doctor can offer.

Craig,

Different but related issue. That's all I can say.
