    A primary care physician is a specialist who provides care to the patient at the point of first contact, and takes continuing responsibility for providing the patient's comprehensive care. Primary care includes health promotion, disease prevention, health maintenance, counseling, patient education, diagnosis and treatment of acute and chronic illnesses. Primary care practices provide patients with ready access to their own personal physician, or to an established back-up team when the primary physician is not available.
