A primary care provider (PCP) is a physician, physician assistant or a nurse practitioner, all of whom have received a license to practice medicine. Your PCP is your main health care provider in non-emergency situations, and often involved in your care for a long time, making it very important to select someone that is the right fit for you. Your PCP's role is to provide preventative care and teach healthy lifestyle choices, identify and treat common medical conditions, and assess the urgency of any medical problems. Should you need specialty care, your PCP can direct you to the best place for specialty care, making referrals to the specialist when necessary.
Along with the above forms, patients are asked to bring the following items with you to your appointment:

Every minute counts when you're in the doctor's office, and it's easy to forget to ask all the questions you intended to ask, or speak up about your concerns. While it's hard to squeeze in extra time when everyone's on a tight schedule, you can make the most of what time you do have in your doctor's office. Here's how.
Be prepared. Don't go to your office visit empty-handed. Bring along a list of the questions and concerns you have, and a pen for writing down the answers. Also bring a list of all medications you are taking, including over-the-counter, prescription, and vitamin and herbal supplements (or you can bring a bag with all of your medication bottles with you to show your medical provider). Do you have allergies? Be sure to list those, too. And be ready to answer questions about your family health history.
Speak up. Don't be afraid to ask your doctor to repeat information or explain something more clearly. If the doctor has given you specific instructions, repeat them back, so both of you know you understand what you need to do.
Bring a friend. Doctor's visits can be overwhelming—there's often a lot of information to digest. Ask a friend or family member to come along and take notes for you; then you can concentrate on what the doctor is saying.
Be honest. If you haven't been taking your medicine or haven't been adhering to the diet you were given, let the doctor know. He or she can suggest options that might fit your lifestyle better.
Know what's next. Make sure you know and understand the steps you need to take to achieve your health goals. Do you need to schedule a follow-up visit, fill a prescription, or arrange for further care? Get the answers before you walk out the door.
If you cannot keep your scheduled appointment, it is very important that you call us as soon as possible to cancel/reschedule. This will give us an opportunity to offer your appointment time to another patient. Additionally, with your cancellation noted, our records will reflect that you do not have a history of missed appointments.
In order to provide you prompt service with the physician of your choice, it is best to call to make an appointment. If you need to be seen immediately, and do not have an appointment, you may be seen as a same-day patient with your provider's physician assistant (based on availability). You can simply walk in or call ahead if you want to decrease your wait time.
If you feel that you are experiencing a medical EMERGENCY, go to the hospital's Emergency Department, or call 9-1-1.
When you're dealing with a chronic health condition, you're probably seeing your doctor, or multiple doctors, regularly. You need to be especially organized in order to take advantage of every appointment. Here are a few tips to help you stay on track:
