GIVE YOURSELF A GIFT OF PRIMARY CARE!

The holiday season is filled with decorations, family get-togethers, good food, and often, lots of shopping!  We give gifts to the most important people in our lives to show them that we care. But have you thought about giving to the most important person in your life? YOU! And one of the most important things you can do for yourself is to make sure you have a primary care doctor.

 

A primary care doctor is one person who oversees your overall health, referring you to specialists if you need them.  With a primary care doctor, health problems are detected and treated before they become serious and require hospitalization.  That means better health for you and lower costs.

 

In short, a primary care doctor is someone who will take care of the most important person—YOU — so you can continue to care for others around you.  Get a primary care doctor – it’s easy! Call 887-CARE for an appointment.
