What is primary care?

Primary care is a comprehensive medical field encompassing preventive care, health promotion, and treatment for various injuries and illnesses. You can schedule a primary care appointment if you have concerns about symptoms, enquiries regarding medications or therapies, or routine check-ups. Your primary care practitioner serves as your primary point of contact when you experience health issues.
