Healthcare can be a confusing topic these days. With all of the national and state changes, doctor visits, co-pays, insurance claims, specialist visits and follow-up appointments, many people tend to skip a regular health check-up with a primary care physician.
Why do I need a Primary Care Physician (PCP)?
Many patients have a variety of reasons for not having an established primary care physician. Some don’t feel they need one. Some have specific needs and go straight to the specialist.
Primary care physicians are critical to continued care and to prevention. By seeing a doctor who knows your medical history well, it is easy to prevent the onset of illness and save time and money.
