With healthcare open enrollment upon us, and changes to yearly healthcare plans starting January 1st, it’s more important than ever to choose your primary care physician. As a patient, it’s important to find a physician that fits your needs.


Finding a primary care physician is the first step toward managing your health. Your primary care physician is the center of your medical health. It is your medical home for most medical needs, whether it’s a sports physical, routine women’s wellness exam, or place to go when you have a sore throat. “Your doctor”, your primary care physician is the person you can speak to about your health questions and concerns. They get to know you, and if necessary can refer you to a specialist if they aren’t able to make the perfect recommendation.


No matter how long you plan to see your primary care physician, it’s an important decision to make. They are there for you when you need them, and they know you and your body when it needs medical care.
