Why a Relationship With a Primary Care Provider is Important
Your primary care provider plays an essential role in your personal health and in our healthcare system. In fact, studies show that a good relationship with a primary care doctor is associated with better health for you and lower healthcare costs for our communities.
Our women’s healthcare providers serve as a first contact when you have a common health concern or non-emergency situation. Our role is to help prevent, identify and treat common problems and provide comprehensive and continuous care. We also help coordinate other health services or specialty referrals when appropriate, while serving as a point person for your care.
