Why Do I Need A Family Doctor?
Most of us know that you go to your family doctor to treat aches, pains, minor injuries and colds. But these are just a few areas primary care doctors treat in a broad field of expertise. Primary care doctors:
- Provide care for most diseases, except very uncommon or unusual ones.
- Offer counseling.
- Monitor your health against your lifestyle goals over time, something called health promotion.
- Educate patients about preventing chronic diseases, like limiting sugar if you have prediabetes or increasing your physical activity if you’re at higher risk for heart disease.
If you do need specialized care, primary care doctors integrate your treatment with a specialist and make sure any additional care you need gets coordinated across other doctors and the larger health system.
Primary care providers can provide much of the health care patients need. This includes initiating an evaluation and managing many complex medical conditions and determining when patients need a specialist referral.
