A Primary Care Physician should be seen as your point person for health. PCP’s make sure your health and body are in check and running well.
You may be thinking that because you feel good today, you must be healthy.
However, even if you feel fine the first line of defense is routine screenings and blood tests. They are the best indicators of how healthy you are.
PCP’s help take care of your basic and routine healthcare needs by providing continuity of care. By getting to know you, your PCP is able to oversee your progress and you continue through life and treatments.
A PCP is able to asses what’s going on from multiple angles and take a more rounded approach to assess what might be going on with you.
As your primary healthcare partner, your PCP helps you prevent illness and set specific goals for a healthy future.
