Know Before You Go - Importance of a PCP

providers icon

One of the best places you will get consistent, quality health care is with your primary care provider, also known as your PCP.

PCPs play a huge role in keeping you healthy. By visiting him/her for routine visits as recommended, your PCP will get to know you, your medical history and your lifestyle. If you have a medical issue, having a doctor who knows your health history often makes it easier and faster to get the care you need.

If you don’t already have a PCP, you can begin researching one today. Start by asking your family and friends about their doctors, or search our online doctor and facility directory.
