A Primary Care Provider is a Primary Healthcare Need

A primary care provider (PCP) is uniquely qualified to see the big picture of your health, and help you understand it. More studies show that people who see a PCP live longer. 

A PCP is trained to look after your overall wellness, manage chronic illnesses, and keep you on track with screenings that can help prevent serious conditions. By providing preventive care, a PCP can help you manage everything from diabetes and high blood pressure to arthritis and anxiety – which can improve your quality of life.  

A PCP can also coordinate your referrals with specialists, labs, and any other providers you might need. This continuity of care is designed to make it easier for you to navigate your health journey and help you focus on what matters most –getting healthy and staying heathy.  

Choosing a PCP is personal 

Your PCP can be a physician, nurse practitioner, or a physician’s assistant. The key is to find someone with whom you can be open, honest, and comfortable sharing your medical issues. Having a trusted relationship helps your PCP understand your medical history and provides you with personalized care.
