by Natalie (SU)
Have you just moved into the area, or did you just change insurance and you’re looking for a new primary care doctor? If you are, you are about to make a very important decision, because your health is at stake. It’s not really about which doctor is better, but rather about which doctor is better for you. Everyone is different, and your friend’s primary doctor may not be your first choice. So before you make a decision, inform yourself about the qualities that any primary care doctor should have, and take an inventory of what is most important to you. To help you get organized, here are some insider tips for choosing the best primary care doctor for you.

Why Do We Get Sick in the Winter: Your Primary Care Physicians

Why Do We Get Sick in the Winter: Your Primary Care Physicians

by Natalie (SU)
“Better bundle up so you don’t catch a cold!” This phrase has been passed down, by mothers, from generation to generation. The logic seems to make perfect sense. People tend to get sick more often in the cooler months, so the cold weather must be the culprit, right? Well, while the fall and winter months do see more colds and flus, the outdoor temperature is not what’s making you sick. There are actually a number of biological, environmental, and social factors that are the real cause of why we get sick in the winter.

What Does Being a Family Doctor Mean?

What Does Being a Family Doctor Mean?

A funny thing about families is that they like to share – just about everything. That includes pesky colds and flu viruses that show up this time of year. In fact, one of the first things your doctor may ask when you say you have a sore throat is, “Is Eloise or Justin sick?” That’s because he or she knows that you’re a mom of two little ones, and chances are if they have it, so do you. This is one of the best reasons to have a family doctor.

If you have insurance, most likely you have been asked to choose a primary care physician. But what exactly does this mean? What does a primary care physician do and why is it so important that you choose one? Well, you have probably noticed that the healthcare system is growing larger and more complicated every day. Sometimes it can seem like a complicated maze, with twists and turns at every corner. This is where your primary care physician comes in. This is your one person—your doctor—who knows you and understands your needs.

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.
