A primary care provider offers the first line of defense when it comes to your health care needs. Primary care physicians are trained to recognize common medical conditions, including acute issues like the flu and chronic problems like diabetes.
When you have a regular, trusted primary care provider, you develop a health history so they can notice changes in your health early — when problems are easiest to treat. The team at Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic also gets to know your whole family’s history, so they know if you’re at risk of developing certain genetic conditions.
A primary care provider offers care and treatment throughout all stages of your life. They can also arrange referrals to a specialist if you have a unique medical condition.
At Babcock Health and Wellness Clinic, the primary care providers prevent and diagnose problems before they become more serious, which can reduce the need for more complicated and expensive treatments later.
