It’s important to see your Primary Care Provider (PCP) regularly. Your PCP can help you when you’re sick or have questions about your health. They know what’s best for you and your healthcare needs. If you can’t get a hold of your doctor, a visit to your closest Urgent Care Center or Emergency Room may be necessary, depending on the medical circumstance.
