Do I Need a Primary Care Provider?
I used to be a member of the Urgent Care Club. If I was sick, I could find the nearest walk-in clinic for treatment. And if I was well, then I probably didn’t need a check-up, right?
Wrong. I take my kids for regular wellness checkups with their pediatrician- why wouldn’t I do the same?
Primary Care Providers provide care for both regular checkups and sick visits, which means more personalized care (and no more walk-in clinics). And depending upon their focus (family medicine versus internal medicine), they can also serve as your child’s doctor.
Many find comfort and convenience in having the same doctor for your entire family.
PCPs are not always physicians; they can also be nurse practitioners (NPs) or physician assistants (PAs). Many practices offer PCPs in varying certifications.
