What is a Primary Care Provider?
A primary care provider (PCP) is your main healthcare provider in non-emergency situations. Your PCP’s role is to provide you with comprehensive, preventative care, identify and treat your common medical conditions, assess the urgency of your medical problems and direct you to the best place for care, and refer you to specialists with necessary.
Having a PCP can give you a trusting, ongoing relationship with one medical provider over time. It is essential that you select the best medical provider for you, one whom you trust and work well with. Because choosing a primary care provider is so important, you may call to schedule an initial consultation with any of our providers.
At Nova, your PCP can be a family physician, an internist, a family nurse practitioner, or a pediatrician.
