What do primary care doctors do?
Primary care doctors treat most medical concerns that are not emergencies, such as:
- Cold and flu symptoms
- Common infections, such as ear infections, eye infections, bladder infections, etc.
- Upset stomach
- Management of chronic diseases, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.
If you have a condition that requires treatment by a specialist, your primary care doctor plays an important role in managing your care. The primary care doctor makes sure:
- The doctors who treat you know about any other medical conditions you have
- The medications you receive work well together and don’t have any harmful interactions
- The treatments you receive are right for you
In addition to care when you’re sick, your primary care doctor helps you maintain your health when you’re well through essential tests and proactive procedures, such as immunizations and regular physical exams. Your primary care doctor will also let you know when it’s time to schedule important screenings, including tests for heart disease or cancer.
