Learn why a primary care provider is important for your health

What’s the difference between a primary care provider and other providers?

A primary care provider practices general medicine and typically sees patients for routine, non-emergency medical care in an office or clinic. Unlike specialists who focus on specific areas of health, a primary care provider focuses more on preventative care and wellness. There are different types of primary care providers, including family practitioners, pediatricians for children, obstetricians and gynecologists for women’s health, and internists.

Why do I need a primary care provider?

A recent study found that patients who stayed with the same primary care clinician had a higher probability of avoiding emergency room visits and hospital admissions. That’s good for your health, and it could save you hundreds – or even thousands – of out-of-pocket dollars.

Why is a patient's relationship with their primary care provider so important?

Recent surveys show that strong patient-provider relationships result in healthier outcomes and could be the antidote to an ever-more-complex health care system. A primary care provider addresses your overall health – rather than a single specialty or condition. A primary care provider that knows you and your health history can more effectively treat illnesses as they arise. That relationship means you always have a well-informed professional in your corner.

What if I need specialized medical treatment?

Should you need specialty care, a primary care provider does more than refer you to a specialist. Your primary care provider can prepare you for that first visit and answer your questions. Your primary care provider then stays in contact with your specialists to track your progress and how that treatment impacts your overall health. Should you face complex medical issues, you may see multiple specialists. A primary care provider remains at the center, managing all aspects of care.

Do I really need annual wellness checkups?

A yearly checkup helps providers catch both small and big changes in your health. Screening tests during annual visits can head off serious conditions and be lifesavers for women who forget monthly breast exams or men who put off routine prostate exams. Annual checkups allow you to discuss your overall health goals, like improving your sleep habits or taking up a new sport. That yearly visit also reinforces your relationship with your provider, so they know you well when you need them most.
