Primary care physicians are specialists in family medicine, general internal medicine, or pediatrics. They provide comprehensive care to undifferentiated patients at the first point of contact. Their role may include chronic and preventive care as well as acute care. They are trained to provide comprehensive primary medical services and are often responsible for the patient’s health education. They may also consult with other specialists and refer patients when necessary. They are the most common type of physician and are responsible for the health of the largest percentage of the population.
The goal of primary care is to ensure that each patient has one doctor for their health. The providers are often like old-fashioned generalists but have more modern approaches to medicine. They work as a team to get to know patients and make wellness decisions. They may be your only medical home, but they are your first line of defense in the event of an emergency. A physician’s role in primary care is to be your personal go-to resource.
In addition to providing routine care, primary care often involves vaccinations and shots. This type of care can be delivered by a team, but exemplary primary care still requires a one-on-one relationship between the physician and the patient. Therefore, a patient’s doctor should always be available to answer questions and recommend the appropriate treatment. It is important to find the right doctor for your specific needs.
Whether you are seeing a physician or a nurse, you need to know the basics about your health. Primary care providers can provide you with preventive and wellness services. They also work in collaboration with other primary care providers to provide the best possible overall health. Generally, a physician will be the best option for treating a child with a cold or the flu. A nurse practitioner is also an ideal candidate to treat people who are in the midst of an acute illness.
