Primary Care Q & A

What is a primary care doctor?

Primary care physicians serve as the first person you contact for all your medical care. As your primary care provider, Dr. Sannoh treats new health problems that occur in any body system and provides ongoing care for chronic medical conditions. You gain another benefit from having a primary care physician, in that Dr. Sannoh knows your medical history and can provide consistent care.

Why do you need a primary care doctor?

Health insurance companies require you to name a primary care doctor, but that’s not the most compelling reason you need one. Studies show that having a primary care physician helps you stay healthier as you get older. It’s easy to see the benefits of primary care based on services provided by Dr. Sannoh such as:

Advocate

The doctor simplifies the complex world of medicine by managing your overall health care, serving as your advocate should you need specialized treatment, and helping you find community-based services.

Medication management

Adults with chronic health conditions often take multiple medications, which is called polypharmacy. An estimated 30% of hospital admissions and preventable problems such as falls are associated with the adverse effects of drugs. Dr. Sannoh reviews your medications to ensure you’re safe from side effects and to reduce the number of medications when possible.

Education and awareness

Dr. Sannoh works with you as a partner in healthcare, talking with you about your health, explaining conditions, and answering questions.

Preventive care

Your risk of developing a serious illness goes down when you have a primary care physician to rely on for annual checkups.
