  • 40.5 percent more likely to have had their cholesterol checked*
  • 33 percent more likely to have been tested for diabetes*
  • 30.5 percent more likely to have received a flu shot*

​2. People who receive primary care also have fewer preventable emergency room department visits and hospital admissions than those who don’t. **

4. ​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.

5. Your Kelsey-Seybold primary care physician is the person who helps co-ordinate your medical care for you, prompting you to schedule important preventive measures like mammograms, bone density tests and colorectal screenings.
