Who can be seen at the LoboCare Clinic?

Why do I need a PCP if I can go to LoboCare Clinic?
LoboCare providers do not have patient panels and can not be a Primary Care Provider. It is a very good idea to have a provider that is able to see you on a regular basis and knows your unique medical needs. You should see your PCP on a regular basis to address health care maintenance and chronic medical problems as well as get refills on medication. Studies have shown that patients with a PCP have better health outcomes.
