What Is Primary Care and Why Is It Important?

Primary care means having a relationship with a doctor and an entire health care team who see you regularly to help you stay healthy. This includes regular checkups, blood pressure checks, and getting vaccinations like flu shots.

NYC Care can help you choose a caring primary care provider you can trust. Your primary care provider can be a doctor, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant.
