What is Primary Care

Primary care is often the first point of contact people have with the health system.

It’s where patients receive care for their everyday health needs; illness prevention, health promotion, care for common illnesses and management of ongoing health problems.

It’s the care provided by family doctors and other health care providers such as nurses, dietitians, social workers, pharmacists, and others. For example, a patient with high blood pressure may not only see their family doctor, but also trained clinic staff who will regularly monitor their blood pressure, and other staff for help with selecting the right foods to eat.

At The Associate Clinic, we encourage patients to see his or her own family doctor for ongoing health needs. The family physician knows his or her own patients best, so seeing your family physician best contributes to overall health.
