Why It Matters to Have a Primary Care Physician
When it comes to your ongoing medical care, having a primary care physician means having a medical professional who’s familiar with your health history and can guide your care in the future, too. Primary care providers specialize in fields such as family medicine, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, general pediatrics, and geriatrics. Building a relationship with a primary care doctor benefits your whole health in these ways and more.
A physician who knows you can more effectively notice changes in your health and coordinate your unique care to keep you well.
Patients are more likely to mention a health concern and ask questions when they know their doctor. That makes you more likely to receive quicker, more effective treatment.
Regular checkups with your primary care physician can help you avoid preventable illnesses, ensuring potentially serious problems are caught early, when treatments work best.
Out of all your providers, your primary care physician is the one who can keep track of your medications to make sure they’re all working together safely.
Over time, your doctor collects records of immunizations, vital signs and other health measures, so they’ll know if something isn’t right with your health.
Knowing Your Numbers
A big part of what primary care physicians do is preventive care, which includes checking your cholesterol and blood pressure numbers so you can take steps to maintain or improve them.
