Primary Care Physician
A primary care physician or doctor is the person you see first for most health problems. This doctor or physician sees you for general health related reasons, and makes sure you get the care you need to remain healthy. They may also refer you to other doctors or health care providers. In many Medicare Advantage plans, you might be required to see your primary care doctor before you see any other health care provider.
