What is Primary Care?

Primary care covers prevention, wellness, care for chronic conditions, and treatment for a variety of health concerns.

Your primary care provider is often your first point of contact and may be thought of as a “general practitioner” who provides for your everyday health care needs. They focus on listening and developing a long-term partnership with you, looking at the complete picture of health and considering your family background and health history.

Primary care providers also give referrals to specialists when you need additional medical expertise to treat a specific condition.
