What is the difference between an Internist and a Family Practice Doctor?

I am in the process of finding a new primary care Doctor, and am lost as to which kind of doctor is better to have.

Over all is better to have one rather than the other?

Thanks for any advice you can give me

You want a family practice doctor. An internist is a doctor who specializes in a wide array of diseases and disorders of the body and generally knows how to manage them.
