Keeping you healthy and happy
When you are sick or injured, your first step is often to see your primary care doctor. Primary care refers to a health care provider who serves as the first point of contact for patients. Most primary care doctors work in clinics, rather than in a hospital.
What is a primary care doctor?
Primary care doctors train specifically for acting as the first contact for patients with health questions or problems. They specialize in treating patients with undiagnosed symptoms and health concerns.
Primary care includes promoting health, preventing disease, diagnosing and treating illnesses, educating patients and maintaining health. Primary care doctors consult with patients about their health concerns and refer them to specialists when appropriate.
