You need primary care because it’s your first point of contact for any medical assistance. Even if you’re healthy, you still need an annual physical exam. It’s also important to have a provider who can take care of any unexpected acute illnesses.
Your primary care provider is trained to diagnose and treat any medical condition that affects you. They also have a better understanding of your general health, making it easier for them to spot issues and get you the additional services you need to manage your health.
The goal of primary care is to provide a broad spectrum of preventive and curative care over a period of time.
