Primary Care/Family Medicine
There are many advantages to having a dedicated PCP. A dedicated PCP knows your family and medical history, lifestyle, and habits. Your PCP will coordinate your care and act as an expert guide to the medical system, including referring you to specialists at Weeks and other facilities. Your PCP will help you prevent and detect health problems through regular office visits and help you develop and carry out a personal health maintenance and improvement program.
