The start of a new year means the opportunity to reevaluate your health and wellbeing. One of the most important things to take into consideration when evaluating your health and wellbeing is how often you receive checkups from your primary care provider.

Receiving a checkup from your primary care provider offers a variety of benefits for your health and wellbeing. It also allows you to establish a Patient Centered Medical Home. This home serves as the center of your care and plays a central role in your health. When establishing a Patient Centered Medical Home your primary care provider serves as your main coordinator of care and helps you setup visits with specialists, counselors, wellness specialists and more.

Primary care providers can also help you obtain screenings that detect preventable conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes and ensure you receive any important vaccinations. By receiving the proper care you need now you will be able to manage long term health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and obesity in a proactive manner. Your primary care provider can also provide you with an assessment of your overall health and wellbeing and connect you with a wellness professional that specializes in health coaching, healthy eating and healthy lifestyle habits.
