Primary Care

Primary care physicians – those who focus on family or internal medicine – are called the “gatekeepers” to the health care system. They are the first doctors you see as a newborn and they guide you through life, referring you to specialists or for blood or diagnostic imaging tests when needed. They are always kept in the loop even when you visit these other doctors so they can continue to best manage your overall health. As the nation’s health focus shifts to keeping us healthy and out of the hospital, primary care physicians become even more important partners, helping you with nutrition, chronic and acute health issues, behavioral health concerns, exercise and other important steps in your quest to stay healthy.
