Your health is the most important thing you’ve got. A primary care physician (PCP) is your own personal doctor and go-to person for all your health care needs.
When you have a symptom or concern, your PCP is your first point of contact. Not only does your PCP diagnose and treat illness, he or she will counsel and educate you about how to maintain your health and prevent disease. Your primary care physician ultimately becomes your long-term partner for a healthy life.
You know you need a PCP, but with hundreds to choose from, how do you find the right one?
Look for a doctor who meets these five criteria. Don’t settle for less.
Once you know the type of PCP you’re looking for, you’ll want to learn about the doctor, including education, credentials, clinical interests, philosophy of care, insurances accepted, etc.
