Seeing a primary care provider at MississippiCare helps you get the routine care you need, which can prevent problems from becoming serious.
Your primary care doctor can handle your annual exams and provide regular care if you have a chronic condition that needs to be managed. When you go to a primary care provider, you can depend on having this provider as your main doctor for all of your visits.
The benefits of having a primary care provider, especially one that offers family medicine, are numerous. You can see your primary care provider for your sick and wellness visits instead of seeing different providers for each visit. Doing this ensures that your main provider knows all about your personal medical history, as well as your family medical history.
You can also establish a strong sense of trust for your provider, which can help you feel more comfortable talking about health issues or concerns. If you have family members who also need care, your primary care doctor can provide it for everyone. This means you will have a doctor that you know and trust to turn to for any health issues that come up in your family over the years.
