Keep In Touch With Your Primary Care Physician

Next » « Previous


Ideally, your primary care physician will stop in and see you once a day.  Your primary physician knows you and your overall medical situation. He or she may spot potential problems that are not apparent to specialists who are focusing on one particular situation.

If your primary care physician doesn't stop in, ask the resident to contact with your primary physician and bring him or her to date. Follow-up by asking the resident your doctor's reaction to what he or she was told. 

Feel free to call your primary care physician with updates or questions.
