What are the advantages of having a regular doctor?
For one thing, she will get to know you and your family intimately—your “medical history,” your response to certain drugs, your normal blood pressure, your emotional reaction to illness, and many other facts which may be helpful when illness occurs.
She can also give you the benefits of preventive medicine. For example, if you have young children, she will want to see them at intervals to check their growth and development—and to keep their protection against communicable diseases up to date.
