Are you looking for a new primary care doctor?
Primary care physicians are doctors who practice general medicine and are the first person a patient visits when they have a non-emergency health concern. PCPs are the first point of contact for a patient and serve as an advocate for their healthcare needs. These doctors tend to focus on preventative medicine and perform a series of screenings at annual physical exams to look out for early signs of any disease. Finding an experienced and trustworthy primary care doctor is essential for staying healthy because this is the doctor a patient will visit most frequently.
