The Importance of a Primary Care Doctor

Regular Medical CheckupEveryone should have a regular physician that they turn to for general medical care.

Do you not have a general doctor that you turn to for screenings, preventive care and checkups? If not, then you fall under the 28 percent of US men or 17 percent of US women who do not have a healthcare provider. There are many reasons people don’t turn to a doctor when they should. Maybe you have a phobia surrounding doctors, or perhaps you are stressed out by the cost. Here in Marianna, FL, our primary care physicians want to take the worry and hassle out of getting the care you need to maintain a healthy life.

Why You Should Have a Primary Doctor

The purpose of a primary doctor is to have someone who can provide you with preventive care such as screenings, routine checkups and physicals to make sure that you are in good health. Our primary doctor in Marianna, FL, can also provide you with helpful lifestyle tips and advice to prevent many health problems such as diabetes or heart disease.

Furthermore, while it might be tough to picture having a doctor around when you aren’t sick, when you do fall ill wouldn’t it be better that you have a primary physician that you trust to give you the care you deserve? This will save you a whole lot of time and effort, since many doctors are unable to take new patients. Having a primary doctor means that you always have immediate and comprehensive medical care at your disposal.

Getting routine and preventive medical care can also save you a whole lot of time and stress in the long run. Think about it: If you come in and get the proper checkups you need, and you know exactly what you should do to lead a healthy lifestyle then you’re less likely to deal with serious medical problems that could require expensive bills, extensive surgeries or hospitalization. Our goal as your doctor is to provide you with the care and tools you need to lead a healthy life for the long run.

A healthy, happy life begins with the proper medical care, and here at PanCare Health in Marianna, FL and throughout the Florida Panhandle, we believe everyone should have access to affordable health care. We are here to provide you with the comprehensive and compassionate care you and your family deserve.
