Primary Care Q & A
Why should I have a primary care physician?
Some insurance providers require you to choose a primary care physician. Though that’s important, it’s not the best reason you should have a primary care physician.
A primary care physician is the trusted doctor you turn to for a full range of health care services. They serve as the first person you seek whether you wake up feeling sick, need long-term management of chronic health conditions, or you want a referral to a specialist.
When you have a primary care physician, you have a health professional you can count on to look out for your best care. They know you and your medical history, which helps them understand your concerns and detect early signs of diseases based on your health changes.
With Summit Primary Care, you have someone to turn to for all your health care needs. You don’t need to go to an urgent care facility where no one knows your health history. Instead, you can depend on prompt, comprehensive care and same- or next-day appointments.
