Primary Care Providers, also known as PCP’s, are physicians who provide both the first contact for a person with a diagnosed health concern, and continued care of many medical conditions. With evaluation of the patient, the provider is able to diagnosis and begin treatment. As primary care providers, we develop a physician–patient relationship with monitoring, advising, and providing treatment for the whole family. Primary Care Providers can see patients of all ages, generally seeing one or more members of your family, and making our role as providers a valuable part of your overall health care needs.
Primary Care includes
- Health promotion
- Disease prevention
- Health maintenance
- Patient education
- Diagnosing conditions
- Treatment of acute and chronic illnesses
As a Primary Care Provider we are here to meet the needs of our patients. Other primary care providers include physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
