A physician group refers to one or more physicians operating as an organization to provide care. These can be classified as either private practices, in which a solo physician owns and manages their own office, or group practices where two or more physicians administer care within the same facility.
Group practices can be categorized as either single- or multi-specialty, depending on the type of care that each physician provides. Single-specialty physician groups offer one type of care, like internal medicine or optometry. Physicians in a multi-specialty practice combine their expertise to offer many different types of care all within the same facility.
