Researchers have found that patients having a primary care physician have better management of chronic diseases, have lower overall healthcare costs and a higher level of engagement and satisfaction with their care. Primary care physicians aid in coordinating care in one place for preventative screening, asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes, cough, flu, stomach pain or high fever.
