The importance of having a primary care provider
When it comes to your health and wellness, there’s reassurance in knowing you have an expert there for you. It’s not just anyone, but a trusted partner who knows you and your health history, understands your needs and is nearby to provide both routine care as well as treatment for the unexpected.
Should you need specialized care, your provider will connect you with trusted Allina Health specialists. This integrated approach to your care assures you that you are truly part of one expert care team that is seamlessly connected.
Choosing a primary care provider
Finding that primary care provider who is the right fit for you is an important first step. Here are some things to consider when looking for your primary care provider:
While there are many different types of primary care providers, they all have one thing in common: a desire to provide the highest quality care. Look for years of training as well as type of training and educational institutes attended to determine your level of comfort with a particular provider. Regardless of the type of provider you see, your best interests are at the heart of every appointment.
Feeling comfortable with your primary care provider reinforces your partnership and connection, which will ultimately keep you healthier. A provider who knows your history – who you feel comfortable opening up to – can share honestly with you about ways to be your best, healthiest self.
Focuses and interests.
Does your family have a history of heart disease? Do you take a more holistic approach to your health? Are you a parent of young children and would like a provider who has firsthand experience in parenting? Your family history, beliefs and stage in life are all things that make you who you are. Look for a provider who has professional interests in the conditions you're close to or whose personal interests are similar to yours. Common ground can make for a long-lasting, trusting relationship.
