As a Music Director and conductor direct the Symphony Orchestra, the Family Physician or PCP Coordinates care for the Patient. Everyone needs a PCP to help coordinate their personal care. PCP wants to provide the best possible care for each patient. Bring and ask your PCP or Family Physician questions and your concerns, which is what they are for. Each patient needs to be involved with their plan of care. Most PCP set up a 15-20 minute appointment, time for a couple of problems. If you have several problems you may ask for a longer appointment or set up two. You need to let the scheduler know you have several things to talk about so they can decide how long appointment should be or if you need two appointments
