Why You Need a Primary Care Physician
- by Medical Group of Pennsylvania
As children, many of us visited our family physician or pediatrician every year for our annual checkups and vaccines. As adults, we tend to avoid visiting doctors unless we’re sick and in need of a prescription. Unfortunately, this isn’t optimal for our health and long term well-being. Having a primary care physician who is a trusted source of medical knowledge and understands your family history can help you stay healthy and catch problems early.
