Keeping you and your family healthy
Your primary care provider (PCP) is your prevention partner and your first stop for medical care. Most PCPs are doctors, but nurse practitioners and physician assistants can also be primary care providers. PCPs are also known as primary care physicians, family doctors, general physicians or family medicine doctors. One of their most important jobs is to help keep you and your family in good health. They help you understand your medical history and take care of health concerns before they become health problems.
You and your child should your primary care doctor for routine check-ups or illnesses and injuries that aren't emergencies. They also help manage chronic conditions. Usually, primary care doctors can treat illnesses and conditions in their own offices. If you need more specialized care, they can refer you or your child to a trusted, experienced specialist.
