Get the Right Primary Care Doctor for You!
Choosing a primary care physician is an important first step toward managing your healthcare. Safecare Docs can help you find the professional that is just right for you! Your primary care doctor is essentially your medical “home.” It’s the doctor you visit for most medical needs, including wellness visits and regular screenings, non-emergency health issues such as earaches and sore throats, and the professional you consult with about your health questions and concerns. If you have an HMO (Health Maintenance Organization), your primary care doctor will also be the person who refers you to see a medical specialist.
How Long Will I Have A Primary Doctor?
Some patient-primary care relationships can span decades, while others will be temporary because you switch insurance or move. Regardless of how long you plan to see your medical care physician, the relationship is an important one. Safecare Docs lead you to someone you can feel comfortable having honest discussions with, someone with practical experience in the areas that accommodate your health needs, and someone who is “in-network” for your health insurance plan. Get started today!
