How Primary Care Doctors Take the Hassle Out of Healthcare

Tired of dealing with the hassle of healthcare? Get a primary care physician. It’s their job to make healthcare easy for every patient. Contact Oswego Health to schedule a new patient appointment and meet your doctor today.

Top 4 Ways Primary Care Physicians Make Healthcare Easy 
 
Receiving quality healthcare is hard sometimes – but it doesn’t have to be. You just need a primary care physician (PCP) you can count on. Primary care physicians can treat everyday illnesses, manage chronic diseases, prevent future problems, and much, much more. They’re like pediatricians, but for adults. The best part is that they make healthcare easy, and Oswego Health is here to give you a few reasons why.

1. Flexible Availability with Same-Day Appointments

Woke up with a bad sore throat? Have a fever that won’t go away? Just call your primary care doctor’s office. Most of the time, you can schedule same-day or next-day appointments if you need to. That’s because PCPs purposely build extra time into their schedules to accommodate urgent cases that might come up throughout the day. If for some reason your regular doctor isn’t available at that time, there may be another doctor at the facility who is available to see you sooner. Not only is this super convenient, but it’s also comforting to know your doctor’s office always has your back.

2. Strong Doctor-Patient Relationships

Because your primary care physician sees you so often, they get to know you better – and you get to know them. You don’t have to waste time reciting your family history at every visit, and they know your health priorities and goals. A strong doctor-patient relationship has tons of other benefits, including:

  • The doctor can deliver personalized treatments that are more likely to work
  • Your doctor has a better sense of how your job, hobbies, and personal life might affect your health, which, in many cases, allows them to reach a diagnosis faster
  • Their familiar face can help you feel more relaxed at appointments 

3. Healthcare Close to Home

Think of your doctor’s office as a one-stop-shop. You can take care of all your general healthcare needs in one convenient location. What’s more, you get to pick that location. Choose a doctor’s office that’s close to home to help make getting to and from appointments easy. The closer your office is located, the more time you can save traveling. This is especially helpful if you have to go to work right after your appointment and need to get there on time.

4. No Hassle Here – Only Trust and Respect

Who you choose as your primary care doctor is entirely up to you. That gives you the freedom to pick a doctor you trust and feel comfortable with. When you call the office to make your first appointment, you can request a specific doctor by name if you have one in mind. You can also request to have a male or female doctor if that’s important to you. Once you establish trust and comfort, healthcare is smooth sailing from here on out.
