What is a primary care provider?
A primary care provider handles chronic conditions (like diabetes, frequent migraines, or high blood pressure) as well as your general wellness. While urgent care is helpful for unexpected illnesses and injuries, primary care keeps track of your health and health conditions, some of which may have to be managed with medication.
Why should I have a primary care provider?
A primary care provider makes keeping track of your health much easier. That increased continuity of care makes it easier to spot potential problems AND offers a better record of your health if any issues do arise. Simple test results can reveal underlying issues that you maybe didn’t even know you had! Regularly visiting a Primary Care Provider is beneficial for adult health and wellness.
If you ever have a serious problem that requires a specialist, care is much more streamlined because the specialist will have an accurate medical record for you. Research has shown that people with a Primary Care Provider have better chronic disease management, lower overall healthcare costs, and a higher level of satisfaction with their care. So what are you waiting for?
