What is a primary care physician?

Here at our Humble, TX, office, your doctors develop long-term relationships with each and every patient. They provide much-needed routine check-ups, cancer screenings, women’s healthcare, mental health checks, and so much more all in a safe, comfortable environment.

The advantages of having a medical home

According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, regularly visiting a primary care physician carries a host of health benefits, including:

  • A decrease in hospital emergency room visits
  • Better management of your chronic health problems
  • Early discovery of potential health issues
  • Increased education on diet, exercise, vaccinations, supplements, and more

Additionally, research from the Cleveland Clinic says that people who have a primary care physician lose less time from school and work, and generally feel better about the services they receive.
