4 Benefits of Having a Primary Physician
When faced with an acute medical need such as cold or flu symptoms, ear aches or even extreme muscle pain, most people call their family physician first. However, there are some people who go to an urgent care facility as their primary source for medical care. At Questcare Medical Clinics, we want to be your first choice as your primary physician and we hope these four benefits will convince you the same.
1. A Primary Physician Knows Your History & Your Family History
When having treated a patient for years, even decades, our physicians develop a keen understanding of our patient’s medical history. This helps us make precise diagnoses and monitor you more closely for any changes in your health and wellness.
2. Family Doctors Do More Than Just Yearly Exams
While our doctors perform yearly check-ups, they also are there to help our patients manage chronic medical issues such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis. They can also treat your acute medical conditions like injuries and many infections.
3. When You Need a Specialist, They’ll Find The Best One For You
Sometimes a medical issue arises that require consultation with a specialist. When our patients are faced with a medical condition that requires a specialist, our physicians will find a specialist who fits your exact needs and will maintain constant communication about the medical condition.
4. A Primary Physician Stays With You For Life
We treat patients of all ages. From infants to toddlers to children to teenagers to adults, it is not uncommon for us to see our patients for decades of their lives. Since our primary care physicians have the skills to treat a wide range of chronic and acute medical conditions, we can be your medical doctor at any point in your life.
