Having a primary care provider is important as they are able to develop a relationship with their patients that allows them to maintain accurate and detailed patient records and develop a treatment plan to best suit each individual patient. Primary care providers perform physical exams, order or perform diagnostic tests, prescribe medications and treat acute and chronic illnesses, as well as injuries. Primary care providers may also act as your foot-in-the-door to the healthcare system by utilizing consultation or referral to other specialty physicians as appropriate. Primary care provides patient advocacy in the health care system to accomplish cost-effective care by coordination of health care services. Primary care promotes effective communication with patients and encourages the role of the patient as a partner in health care.
Primary care also includes health promotion, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, and patient education.
