Your primary care provider (PCP) is the doctor you visit most for routine screenings, non-emergency care and management of a chronic health condition. If you have an HMO, your PCP is also the person who will refer you to our medical specialists. PCPs serve as your advocate and guide should you need complex, extended multi-disciplinary specialty care.
