Your Primary Care Provider
Your primary care provider is your main doctor. This is who you’ll visit for most of your health care needs and is listed on your ID card. Your provider will:
When you’re sick or hurt, always call your primary care provider first (unless it’s an emergency). Even after normal hours, someone from the office should be on call and able to help.
If you haven’t gone to your primary doctor before, call and make a new patient appointment as soon as you can. It is a good idea to visit them when you are well to help them learn about your medical history before any health issues occur.
You can change your primary care provider anytime.
