Why do I need a primary care provider?
You’re young, you’re healthy and you’re very, very busy. You might be asking yourself, “do I really need a primary care provider?” The short answer: Yes, you do.
Having a primary care provider will keep you healthier as you age. This includes lower risk of dying from cancer, heart disease or stroke. The reason for this is what’s known as “continuity of care.” This means that you establish a relationship with a health care provider and you enhance that relationship year after year. This provider knows your habits, manages ongoing conditions or ensures your being properly screened for disease.
For these reasons and more, if you don’t have a primary care provider, there is no better time to establish one!
