What is Primary Care, and why do seniors need it?

Having a primary care physician that you trust is important at any age—but when you’re in your senior years, it’s crucial that you have a doctor who knows you and your healthcare history. A long-term primary care physician can quickly detect any potential problems or changes in your health, reducing the risk of medical complications and providing a welcoming and familiar environment when you visit the office.
