What is a Primary Care Practice?
The AAFP defines a Primary Care Practice as follows:
A primary care practice serves as the patient’s first point of entry into the health care system and as the continuing focal point for all needed health care services. Primary care practices provide patients with ready access to their own personal physician, or to an established back-up physician when the primary physician is not available.
To put it simply, primary care is the most foundational level of care and the first point of contact for you and your family members on your healthcare journey. Primary care includes and has positive benefits in the areas of:
- health improvement
- health risk estimate and disease identification
- prevention of acute and chronic diseases
- treatment of acute and chronic diseases
- self-management support
- rehabilitative, supportive and palliative care for disability or end-stage diseases
As a Primary Care Practice, First Care is proud to provide this wide-ranging foundational service to the Naples community.
Why is Primary Care important?
Our primary care doctor in Naples specialize in diagnosing, treating and preventing a wide variety of conditions – the key to keeping you healthy! By using preventative measures, managing chronic disease, and encouraging ongoing self-care, our providers ensure that patients receive the right care from the right provider, when and where they need it. Our primary care specialists serve on the front lines of healthcare and they are often the first to observe symptoms of depression, chronic disease or even cancer and other health issues. Meeting with them enables patients to be treated for what ails them and, as needed, get referrals to specialists. By getting the right care in the right setting by the most appropriate provider, the patient’s needs are fully met.
When you see the doctor during your annual checkup, he or she can catch and treat problems early and even prevent or eliminate potentially serious disorders. According to the American College of Physicians, adults in the U.S. who have a primary care provider have 19% lower odds of premature death than those who only see specialists for their care. In addition, patients save 33% on healthcare compared to those who only see specialists, meaning primary care reduces healthcare spending, too. Access to primary care helps keep people out of emergency rooms, where it costs at least 3-4 times more than other outpatient care.
Primary care should always be your first stop for non-emergency needs!
