Get Checked!

It all starts with an annual exam with your primary care provider. As early as two years of age it is essential to visit a primary care provider annually to ensure you are up to date on vaccines, discussing preventative measures for your future and addressing health concerns you may have.

Who is a primary care provider?

A primary care provider (PCP) should be your first source for routine, nonemergency medical care. You also can see a PCP by appointment when you are sick. Having a PCP is important because:

  • Your provider knows you and your health history.
  • PCPs help patients establish healthy lifestyles that can prevent illness.
  • Having a PCP is cost-effective and efficient.

If you already have a primary care provider, click here to visit our Patient Portal and set up an appointment. If you need to establish care with a provider, visit our ‘Providers Accepting New Patients’ page.

The Importance of Screenings

Health screening is effective for detecting specific conditions or diseases, even when an individual has not experienced any signs or symptoms. Early detection allows you to get the right treatment at the right time, which often leads to improved outcomes.
