When to Visit a Primary Care Doctor

If your healthcare experience has been limited to occasional trips to a walk-in clinic, you may be unsure of when to visit a primary care doctor and what this medical professional does. Not to worry—here’s a quick overview of when you should schedule a primary care appointment:

  • Once a year for an annual physical. This basic evaluation establishes important health baselines and can help your physician identify medical problems before they progress to cause obvious symptoms.
  • For wellness and preventive health services. Often a part of an annual physical, wellness and preventive services like flu shots, tetanus boosters and routine cancer screenings are an integral part of a patient’s care plan.
  • For acute illness treatment. A primary care doctor is a patient’s “primary” source of treatment when acute illnesses like colds, sinus infections and stomach bugs strike.
  • For long-term disease management. Chronic conditions such as diabetes, asthma and high blood pressure require a long-term treatment approach and ongoing care, which is what primary care doctors provide.
