Primary care doctors are trained to help people stay on top of health conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure. Your primary care doctor can also keep track of any changes in your health status.
When you see the same doctor for most of your healthcare, you have peace of mind knowing someone is looking out for your needs and keeping track of your medical records, patient history and health information in one place over the years.
Most Blue Cross health plans cover your yearly checkup at no cost to you. And an office visit with a primary care doctor costs less than a specialist visit.
