Primary Care Q & A
What is a primary care physician?

Why do you need a primary care doctor?

Dr. Swauncy serves as your advocate and continues to manage your care when you need a medical specialist or community-based services.
Adults with chronic health conditions, especially geriatric patients, often take multiple medications. Taking several medications significantly increases your risk of interactions and side effects. To be sure you’re safe, Dr. Swauncy can review all your medications, including those prescribed by other doctors and over-the-counter supplements.
When you have a primary care physician, you’re more likely to go in for annual preventive checkups, which also means you’re less likely to develop a chronic illness.
