Primary Care

The Doctor Will See You Now

A Primary Care Doctor Can…

  • Serve as your advocate and home base for all medical records and care decisions
  • Provide recommended flu shots and vaccinations
  • Recommend and expedite appointments with appropriate specialists when you become ill or injured
  • Perform routine physicals for preventive care, sports, school, adoption or employment
  • Recommend age-appropriate screenings for cancer, bone density and cardiac health
  • Maintain a long term perspective on your individual risk factors based on personal and family history, including cardiac, cancer, and diabetes risks

Having a primary care physician (family practitioner or internist) who knows you and your health history is one of the best things you can do for your long-term health and wellness. For your kids, a pediatrician plays this role. But don’t wait until you’re sick or injured to establish a relationship. It’s important to start seeing a primary care physician when you are well to have a baseline for comparison.
