Why Have a Primary Care Doctor?

Having a primary care doctor can (literally) be a life-saver! Here are the top 3 reasons to have one:

  • You'll Live Longer. People who have a primary care doctor are less likely to die from cancer, heart disease, stroke and many other illnesses.
  • Convenient One-Stop-Shopping. A primary care doctor knows how to deal with everything from helping you through a bout with the flu to back pain and digestion issues, to uncovering serious illnesses like cancer and heart disease. They can treat almost anything. If not, they get you to a doctor who can.
  • Save Time and Money. If you establish a relationship with a primary care doctor, it's easier to get in for an appointment. At Wheaton Franciscan Medical Group, we offer same or next day appointments for out patients who need to see us right away - helping you to avoid an ED or urgent care visit and higher charge.
