Primary care doctors at UPMC Altoona offer wellness services and treatment for medical conditions that range from common to complex. Having a primary care physician (PCP) you see regularly is key to your overall health. Your PCP helps you to stay healthy by providing regular checkups, preventative health care screenings, and vaccinations.
Your PCP can help you manage life-threatening medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, cancer, and diabetes. They will recommend screenings such as annual physicals, Pap tests, breast exams, mammograms, prostate screenings, colonoscopies, and others. Your PCP also can connect you to highly-trained medical specialists when you need advanced or specialized care.
