Choosing a primary care doctor is one of the most important health decisions you will make. Your primary care doctor is your first call for all medical concerns and is your long-term partner in healthcare.
At Academic Medical, our team of primary care doctors in Irving is dedicated to understanding your medical history and personal background and can provide every patient with a truly personalized care experience.
What Is A Primary Care Doctor?
A primary care doctor resembles the tradition of having a one-for-all family doctor to help you with all your medical concerns.
In our current generation, it is common for families to visit different healthcare specialists depending on the type of health issue/problem. A primary care doctor is essentially a family doctor that families depend on for a variety of different basic health care matters.
What's great about having a primary care doctor that you can trust is that he or she will have all of the medical histories of you and your family, will be able to help you with many different health-related circumstances, and can help to keep you and your family healthier at an overall lower cost.
