Primary Care Is Preventative Care

Like eating well and staying active, seeing a primary care provider regularly is an important part of your health maintenance. People who visit their primary care provider regularly have better health outcomes, lower death rates and lower health care costs than people who don’t, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians.

The Affordable Care Act requires most health plans to cover preventative health services at no cost to you. These services include many health screenings and immunizations. Your primary care provider serves as your guide to accessing many of these benefits.

Astoria Primary Care is conveniently located in the Park Medical Building, across from Columbia Memorial Hospital.
