Primary care refers to the first point of contact and ongoing healthcare services provided by healthcare professionals, usually a primary care physician or a nurse practitioner, who serves as the main provider of comprehensive and coordinated healthcare for individuals and families. Primary care focuses on preventive care, health promotion, and management of acute and chronic health conditions, as well as providing continuity of care and coordinating referrals to specialists when necessary.
Primary care services typically include routine check-ups, vaccinations, screenings, diagnosis, and treatment of common illnesses and injuries, management of chronic conditions, health education, and counseling on lifestyle and behavioral changes. Primary care providers also serve as the central point of communication and coordination among various healthcare providers and settings. Establishing a relationship with a primary care provider is important for maintaining overall health and well-being, and for managing health concerns in a comprehensive and coordinated manner.
