Primary Care

Primary care doctors focus on managing your overall health and wellness. Think of your primary care doctor as your partner in good health.

Sometimes you need a specialist for your care — a surgeon, a cardiologist or a podiatrist — whose expertise is in one particular area of medicine. But, for routine checkups, preventive care and overall health, you need someone who specializes in you — that’s your primary care doctor.

Specializing in You

Think of your primary care doctor as your personal health manager and advocate. He or she gets to know you and your health history to help you maintain good health.

Your primary care doctor:

  • Sees you for preventive care, physicals, routine tests and immunizations, and manages chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or arthritis.
  • Tracks your health history and medical records.
  • Offers guidance on prevention and healthy living to keep you well over time.
  • Coordinates with all your doctors and manages your prescriptions to keep you safe.
  • Diagnoses and treats health concerns early, before they become more serious.
  • Refers you to specialty care when necessary.
