What Is a Primary Care Doctor and Why Do You Need One?
A PCP is someone you can rely on to help you with various medical issues as you age. A consistent physician will typically know you and your health history since you see them at least annually.
As you age, your body changes, and so do your healthcare needs. It is vital to see a doctor who understands your health history and is available when you need them.
In short, having regular care makes it easier to spot any underlying health conditions and can help get ahead of medical conditions. These healthcare providers can also tell you when you need specific tests based on age, health, and family history.
The Difference Between Primary Care and Urgent Care
At MainStreet Family Care, we also offer urgent care services to help you with life’s little emergencies. Our clinics are ready to serve you with no appointment necessary. You can visit the urgent care services page to learn more.
Reasons for visiting us for urgent care could range from cold or flu symptoms to minor injuries such as twists and sprains. You do not have to have an appointment; however, you can register online to reduce your in-clinic wait time.
With primary care, on the other hand, you will often schedule an appointment in advance via the patient portal for annual physicals or lab work. You can sign up for the patient portal and schedule an appointment by visiting the patient portal page.
Benefits of Primary Care
There are many benefits of having a primary care doctor. Seeing a doctor consistently for your health care needs means they know you and your health history better than anyone else. Having a dependable doctor to turn to for medical care and medical advice is invaluable. Therefore, you should obtain better care.
Below are some benefits of having a primary care doctor:
- You can see a consistent team for years, even decades. This approach allows the healthcare team to understand your health and your family history, allowing for a more accurate diagnosis and treatment.
- If you need a specialist for a specific medical condition, your primary care doctor will help you find the right one. Plus, they can send the specialist your health records to familiarize them with your medical history.
- These doctors know which tests you need and when based on your age, health issues, and medical history.
In short, having a consistent doctor can be incredibly helpful for your current and future healthcare.
