Personal Physicians Are Your Gatekeeper to Great Health
Did you know the simple act of selecting a primary care physician can improve your overall health and reduce your risk of chronic illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and cancer?
Your primary care physician is the first line of defense in your medical care and usually the first to diagnose a health problem. A proactive approach to your health care is one of the most significant things you can do to live a longer, healthier life.
Kelsey-Seybold offers a variety of medical specialties in primary care:
Family Medicine: Doctors of Family Medicine provide continuing, comprehensive health care for individuals and family members of all ages.
Internal Medicine: Doctors of Internal Medicine, also known as internists, deal with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of adult diseases.
Pediatrics: Doctors of Pediatric Medicine and Adolescent Medicine, or pediatricians, care for infants, children and teens.
Reasons you need to choose a primary care physician:
People who receive regular primary care have fewer preventable emergency department visits and hospital admissions than those who don’t.
Individuals who have a primary care physician are 40.5 percent more likely to have had their cholesterol checked and 33 percent more likely to have been tested for diabetes.
Your Kelsey-Seybold primary care physician has access to the same electronic medical record as Kelsey-Seybold specialists, pharmacists, hospitalists and imaging and laboratory technicians, so your secure patient information follows you wherever you go.
Your Kelsey-Seybold primary care physician is the person who helps coordinate your medical care for you, prompting you to schedule important preventive measures like mammograms, bone density tests and colorectal cancer screenings.
