Whether you’re suffering from a chronic condition or a sudden cold, visit MedStar Health's Primary Care office located in Lexington Park for a wide-range of family care services, including preventive medicine and sick care.
What is a Primary Care Physician?
Primary care physicians (PCPs) are specially trained to serve as a patient's main doctor over the course of many years. Although your health plan may not require you to have a PCP, having one offers several advantages. Your PCP gets to know you, your family history, and your medical history—knowing this about your overall health, he or she can offer the best treatment advice. And, because your PCP keeps track of your screenings, he or she can remind you to schedule them, which can help detect problems earlier. Learn more about the importance of Primary Care.
Whether you are pregnant and need care through delivery and care for your child, an older adult needing specific treatment for your advanced years, or a child or adult with intellectual and developmental disabilities, our specialists can help.
