FAQ

Common Questions

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

A primary care provider (PCP) is your main healthcare provider in non-emergency situations. Your primary care physician is who you visit for things like routine check-ups, mild aches and pains, or chronic disease. Your PCPs are involved in your care for a long time, so it is important to find a doctor or nurse you like and trust.

How to choose a primary care physician

There are a variety of primary care 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, etc.

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:

  • Does the primary care doctor accept my insurance?

  • Is this primary care physician near me?

  • Do the office hours work with my schedule?

  • Do they offer other services such as onsite lab, pharmacy, or podiatry that make it easier for me?

  • 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.
