Primary Care Physicians Role in Healthcare
Seeing the same patients and their families consistently allows primary care physician’s (PCP) to develop a rapport with their patients and be especially familiar with the factors important to patients health.
PCP’s seek to improve their patients’ health by recommending certain steps to be taken and educating them on why these steps are important. They can also refer you to a specialist when necessary, when they are not able to treat various conditions.
When you are referred to a specialist, your primary care physicians is kept abreast of the care and treatment you receive. For this reason, many people refer to the primary care physicians as the patient’s gatekeeper.
