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.
