What Does a Primary Care Doctor Do?

When you have routine medical issues such as a minor injury or illness, do you have a go-to phone number to call? If not, you probably don’t have a primary care provider to consult for your wellness appointments and your health-related questions. Having a primary care provider for common medical concerns is important, because they can monitor your health over time and notice any changes and treat them right away. Should you need any specialized care, your primary care provider can refer you to another provider.

Primary care providers are also sometimes called family doctors, because they are ideal for treating members of a family who want one trusted resource for all of their family’s medical care. One of the benefits of working with a family doctor or nurse practitioner is that they become familiar with your family’s medical history. This means they can take preventative measures if your children have increased risk for medical conditions that affect their parents or siblings.
