When to go to Urgent Care or ER
Your Primary Care Doctor
It is important to have a primary care doctor.
It’s also important for your doctor to get to know you and for you to get to know your doctor.
Your doctor can:
- Watch over your health care.
- Give you better care than the Emergency Room because he/she knows more about you.
- Help you to understandyour diseases.
- Offer care to keep you from getting sick (preventive care).
- Learn your medical history.
