Primary Care Q&A

Why is adult primary care important?

Your primary care physician is responsible for knowing you and your health history. A regular physical provides a record of your overall health and can be a useful tool in identifying any changes in your health. The annual exam is an opportunity to review your health and discuss any concerns with the provider. They will review your appearance and vital signs and combine that knowledge with your medical and family history, and make suggestions to help you to live a healthier life. Making a little time to review your overall well-being with a health professional can help to preserve and improve your health. Our providers are trained to recognize issues and provide treatment and advice to help you to maintain a high quality of life.

Should I Start Seeing a Primary Care Provider Today?

Yes, ideally you would have a primary care provider set long before you have any medical needs. Your primary care provider is better able to help you after knowing you when you are healthy. This is achieved through regular wellness visits as a baseline impression of your health. If you see your PCP on a regular basis they will be able to determine what is the cause of your current medical condition.

Is a Primary Care Service Available for All Ages of Patients?

Yes, it is. In the same way that a family doctor is a physician for patients of all ages, a PCP serves infants, teens, adults, and the elderly. By seeing you throughout your a primary care physician can better provide you with medical care. After all, this will give them the ability to learn all about you and your health. When you have a healthcare concern or emergency they are already aware of your current health status. For example, if you are being prescribed a certain medication and have a health emergency, they already knows about the meds and how they could affect you. Having a primary care physician on your healthcare team is the best method for living a healthful life.
