A family practice doctor treats all ages, where general practice treats adults. Children & teens need different care than adults -- what a dr. would do for an adult may be life-threatening or fatal for a child. If your child is being treated in an ER, insist on a pediatrician or family practice dr. so their medical care will not endanger them.
