Primary Care

A primary care doctor is the best first point of contact for all of your health needs. Primary care doctors are trained to diagnose and treat a wide variety of health problems. Their specialty is keeping you healthy. A primary care doctor can:

  • Diagnose and help you manage chronic conditions, like asthma, diabetes and hypertension
  • Make sure you get the preventive services you need, like routine screenings and immunizations
  • Refer you to qualified specialists as needed
  • Support you in reaching your personal wellness goals

Your relationship with your primary care doctor is key to your health. Regular visits help you get to know your doctor, making it easier to talk about your health concerns. Your doctor also gets to know you well enough to ask the right questions and catch issues before they become serious.
