A primary care provider (PCP) is your main health care provider. Your PCP’s role is to:

·           Provide preventive care and teach healthy lifestyle choices.

·           Identify and treat common medical conditions.

·           Assess the urgency of your medical problems and direct you to the best place for that care.

·           Make referrals to medical specialists when necessary.


If you are admitted to the hospital your physician PCP may direct your care.


Having a primary doctor or nurse practitioner can give you a trusting, ongoing relationship with one medical professional over time.
