    past continuous or past perfect ???

    i am a little confused. Which sentence is correct?

    (a) He had been seeing his doctor for a number of years before the accident.

    or

    (b) he had seen his doctor for a number of years before the accident.

    What is the difference?

    thank you

    I think verb "see" can't be used in continuous tense
