Why is primary care important? Let us take just a minute to answer these two important questions for you.
A primary care physician is a doctor who has taken extensive training in family medicine, or general practice, as well as in pediatrics, or internal medicine. They are available to assist you and your family with your everyday health care needs. Generally, we will begin seeing a primary care physician as a child for our routine check ups, vaccinations, and immunizations. A primary care physician is knowledgeable in a variety of areas and able to care for health care needs of patients of all ages. Should a patient have a medical condition requiring that they see a specialist, then their primary care doctor will collaborate with both the patient and the specialist. They are a key to keeping you and your family healthy. Your primary care physician will take time to personally get to know you and your family and your medical history. This allows them to be in the best position to provide you with the continuous health care, or long-term management for chronic medical conditions.
Seeing a primary care physician can help keep you and your family healthy through regularly scheduled check up appointments. When you have a primary care physician, that you and your family see regularly, you take one of the most important steps in preventative health care. By means of these regular check ups you are able to build a comfortable, trusting, bond between you and your family doctor. Then on subsequent visits if there are changes in your health, or your families health, the change can be quickly identified and treated. These vital steps aid in preventing a more serious health problem from developing without detection. They are in the best possible position to help when a health concern arises or when you or your family are suffering from a common cold or influenza virus. Do you have questions about a particular medical procedure, treatment option, or medication? Your trusted primary care physician can provide you with reliable answers. A family primary care physician can also help with physicals for participation in sports or if your job requires it.
