What are the benefits of primary care?

Primary care is a single point of contact for your health care management, which is beneficial for many reasons. For example, a primary care provider ensures that you have continuity of care. They know when you're due for health screenings and immunizations and are on hand to diagnose and treat everything from bellyaches to heart disease and cancer. They also collaborate with any specialists you need to ensure you receive partnered care.

Your primary care provider can also help you avoid health problems. They know your health history and can often spot changes in your health before you develop symptoms. They can help you implement lifestyle changes to protect your health and reduce your risk of issues with customized preventive care. 

Also, when you see the same provider regularly, you build a trusting relationship and open communication channels. When you know and trust your provider, it's easier to talk about sensitive issues and ask questions that might feel awkward with a stranger. 

Beachcare Urgent & Family Medical Center is committed to providing expert and compassionate primary care for you and your family. Call the practice, make an appointment online, or visit the office today.
