WHAT IS PRIMARY MEDICAL CARE?
An essential element of any health care system is primary medical care. All Americans should have access to a health professional trained to provide quality primary medical care as their entry point to the system. Dr. Amnott is such a physician and Lauren Yunker is such a Physician Assistant who provide:
- first-contact care for persons with any undiagnosed sign, symptom, or health concern;
- comprehensive care for the person which is not organ- or problem- specific;
- longitudinal or continuous care for the patient;
- responsibility for coordinating other health services as they relate to the patient’s care.
