Common Questions

What is a primary care provider and how do I choose one?

A primary care provider (PCP) is your main healthcare provider in non-emergency situations. You report to your primary care physician for things like routine check-ups, mild aches and pains, or chronic disease, etc. PCPs are involved in your care for a long time, which is why it’s important to pick someone you like. 

How to choose a primary care provider

There are a variety of providers who practice primary care. These providers often work together and make up your primary care team.” They can include family practitioners, pediatricians, geriatricians, internists, gynecologists, nurse practitioners, physicians assistants, and providers specializing in adult gerontology.

After selecting which type of provider is right for your needs, a good place to start is recommendations from friends and family. If those aren’t available, your health insurance plan might be able to help select a doctor who is right for you and covered in your network. Also be sure to consider the following:

  • Is this primary care physician near me?

  • Do the office hours work with my schedule?

  • Is the staff easy to get in touch with?

  • Do I get along with this provider? Can we work together on a plan for my health?

Getting the right PCP for your needs before urgent medical issues pop up will save you time, money, and stress in the long run.
