​Primary Care at UPMC McKeesport

UPMC Content 3

Research shows that having an ongoing relationship with a primary care physician (PCP) — a doctor who knows you, your family, and your medical history — can make you healthier.

Your PCP and You: A Healthy Relationship

The more your doctor knows about you, the better he or she can care for you today and in the future.

During a check-up, your PCP can screen for “silent” diseases — ones you may not know you have — such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Some forms of cancer

If your PCP detects a problem, he or she will work with you to address it and track your progress.
