Looking for healthcare? You have options. Whether it’s urgent, primary or specialty, you can get the type of care you need — right here at Geisinger.
Know your care options
Making the right decisions about your health — and where to go when you need care — is easier when you know your options. Here are a few tips to help.
A primary care provider, or PCP, is the healthcare provider who manages most of your health concerns.
Visit your primary care provider for annual physicals, prescription refills, vaccinations, screenings and help managing chronic conditions, like high blood pressure or diabetes. You can also turn to your PCP when non-life-threatening health conditions pop up, like a cold, rash or urinary tract infection.
