Providing First-Hand Care
Your safety is our top priority. When you come to a Beebe care site, you will be asked screening questions and you will have your temperature taken via a forehead scan. In addition, you will see new safety protocols in place, including visual cues for physical distancing and plexiglass at registration counters.
In addition to safety measures at the offices, patients will also be able to have a telemedicine appointment instead of coming into the office. Talk to your physician office to learn more.
Primary Care Physicians (PCP) or primary care providers are medical professionals who often serve as your first point of care. This should be the doctor or provider you visit yearly for your regular health assessment. Often, these physicians or advanced practice providers (APPs) specialize in internal medicine, family medicine, pediatric medicine, or general practice. They provide first-hand care for their patients both in wellness and in illness.
Your primary care provider provides preventative care, teaches healthy lifestyle choices, identifies and treats common medical conditions, assesses the urgency of a patient's medical problems, directs patients to the best place for their care, and refers and helps coordinate referrals to medical specialists when necessary.
