Primary Care services provide the first point of contact for patients. Primary care includes general practice, community pharmacy, dental and optometry (eye health) services.
Primary Care includes health promotion, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, patient education, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses in a variety of health care settings (e.g., office, inpatient, critical care, long-term care, home care, day care, etc.).
National Health Service (NHS) care is provided in two main ways: primary care (GPs and community services) and secondary care (hospitals and specialists). Primary care is the day-to-day healthcare available in every local area and the first place people go when they need health advice or treatment.
When choosing a primary care doctor, many people want to understand the difference between an internal medicine doctor and a family medicine doctor. Both are considered primary care doctors and have training in several subspecialties. Both treat adults, and both can (in some cases) treat children.
Primary Care clinics typically see patients Monday through Friday during regular business hours, Urgent Care clinics offer services after hours, on weekends and during holidays.
Primary Care Specialties include family medicine, general internal medicine, general pediatrics, combined internal medicine/pediatrics (med/peds) and general obstetrics and gynecology (ob/gyn), fulfilling the general medical needs of specific patient populations.
Routine visits with your primary care provider not only help with your comfort level, but they also build on your health history. Knowledge of your health history, as well as your family health history, is imperative for prevention of diseases and also helps your doctor catch early symptoms of serious conditions.
When you're enrolled in Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, you can generally see any Medicare doctors in the country that takes Medicare assignment (a payment agreement with Medicare).
This is very convenient if you travel for extended periods of time or live in multiple states.
