Why Do You Need to See a Doctor Today?

by Natalie (SU)
In a perfect world, we would all see our doctor once per year for wellness visits, reviewing our latest blood work and getting any vaccines we might need. This would of course, be a world without illness or injury. Unfortunately, it is inevitable that we may need to see our doctor urgently. Research has shown that one of the most important factors that influences good health outcomes, is continuity of care. This means that when you really need your doctor, he or she is there not only to evaluate, diagnose and treat your illness, but also to give you the reassurance that only someone you know and trust can provide. Hence, one of the most important things you should ask when choosing a family medicine provider is whether or not he or she offers same day appointments.
