Health Care Close to Home: Why Your Doctor’s Location Matters
Americans spend a large part of their waking hours at work. Add in exercise, errands, and family time, and schedules quickly become frenzied. That’s why it’s important to find a primary care doctor located close to your home or work. When the main source of your medical care is nearby, you reduce stress and reap major benefits.
Benefits of a Convenient Location
Primary care doctors, such as family practice physicians or internists, are a go-to source when you need medical care. They handle routine illnesses, manage chronic diseases, and provide vital wellness services; so it makes life a lot easier if they are in a location that’s convenient for you. Here are three reasons location matters:
- Less Time in Traffic
Finding a doctor close to your home makes it easy to fit in a visit on the way to or from work, and reduces the drive from home when you feel really sick. Likewise, having a doctor close to work can lessen time away from the office when you need a visit.
- Address Health Concerns Promptly
If seeing the doctor involves a drive across town or a commute, you’re more likely to put off health issues. It’s best to address medical concerns promptly when they can be more easily treated.
- Follow-Up is Easy
If your doctor recommends follow-up care, it’s much more convenient if the office is close by. You’ll be more likely to stick with appointments for any ongoing care you may need.
