Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

A primary care physician (PCP) acts as your main medical provider. Many PCPs, including those at Doctors First, are family doctors who treat patients of all ages, from infants to seniors.

Primary care doctors have undergone comprehensive medical education and training, which allows them to meet virtually all of your standard health care needs, including sick visits, immunizations, and preventive care.

How does preventive care work?

As your primary care doctor, your Doctors First physician focuses on not only managing sudden illness but also preventing illness before it occurs. Many of the most common health conditions today, including diabetes and high blood pressure, are often preventable.

Your PCP monitors your health during yearly check-ups and makes specific recommendations to promote a healthy lifestyle and help you avoid illness and disease.

Besides administering annual physicals and preventive care, the primary care physicians at Doctors First are equipped to provide various medical services, including:

Urgent care for many illnesses and conditions is available during regular office hours. No matter what type of illness or medical concern you're facing, your Doctors First provider is there to help.

What if your primary care doctor can't help?

Doctors First has skilled physicians, an advanced lab, and sophisticated diagnostic equipment on-site. That means the vast majority of medical conditions are easily diagnosable and treatable. However, there may be times when you need further help.

The family physicians at Doctors First maintain close professional associations with a wide network of specialists in all fields and provide referrals when necessary. When you see a specialist, your Doctors First physician will work closely with your specialist to make sure you get the best possible care.
