The One Doctor You Really Need
This doc can save you time, money, maybe even your life.
It’s your primary care provider and CHI Health has more of these providers than anyone else in Nebraska and southwest Iowa.
Here’s why you need one:
- They have your entire health history and can spot problems fast.
- Your wait to get in may be shorter and your medical bills lower because one provider is coordinating tests, procedures and follow-ups.
- You may be able to avoid seeing two or three specialists. Studies show when people don’t have a regular provider, they end up in emergency rooms more often and are admitted to hospitals more.
- Access to a primary care provider can help you feel better and live longer. Studies also show access means death rates for cancer, heart disease and stroke are lower.
