WHAT IS A PRIMARY CARE PROVIDER (PCP)?
  • A Primary Care Provider is a nurse or a doctor who takes care of your basic health concerns to ensure that your routine checks are performed and that focus is always on prevention rather than cure. In simple terms, a PCP is your key partner is keeping good health. They see you at regular intervals to assess your health, perform blood checks and important screenings and refer you to specialists when a need arises.

  • A PCP is different from a specialist and is the first step in seeing a specialist. Their skills are intended for allowing diagnosis and treatment of common health issues. A typical visit to a PCP can include a quick check on your medical history, a brief interview to understand your current health state and a physical examination. They can ask for further screening and tests such as a blood test, a urine/stool test or an X-ray for further examination. If the findings reveal a deeper health concern that a PCP cannot treat, they refer you to a specialist for further diagnosis and treatment. A PCP is also known by other names such as a general practitioner or a primary care doctor.
