Primary care doctors are important to patients over the course of their lives. Patients who see a primary care physician are generally healthier than those who do not. This is because a primary care physician becomes familiar with a patient's unique and changing health needs and provides continuity of care. He or she can treat many conditions, make expert referrals, and generally act with the big picture of a patient's health in mind.
