Dr. Cabugason was wonderful. It had been several years since I had been to the doctor and she made me feel very comfortable. She listened to all of my concerns & addressed every one of them. Her staff was friendly and super helpful. I'm glad I found a new doctor that I can trust.

However, some treatments can cause drowsiness, pain, and other side effects that might affect their ability to do so. Once our team has had time to assess your situation, we'll discuss the proper course of treatment as well as any associated downtime or recovery.

Why do I need a primary care provider?

Having a primary care doctor is essential for every individual, as a primary physician can guide you in how to best manage your overall health. Although other medical practitioners might possess expertise in specific areas, they may not have the same comprehensive understanding of your entire health history, objectives, and conditions that a primary care physician would have.

How much does primary care cost?

The overall price of primary care will differ from patient to patient depending on a wide number of factors. During your appointment, our staff will listen to your concerns and assess your situation to create a custom treatment plan. At that point, we’ll be able to provide a more accurate cost estimate.

Who Should See a Primary Care Provider?

In short, everyone. From children to the elderly, everyone can benefit from primary care appointments. They can be used for immunizations, preventative health, treating existing issues, and diagnosing problems you didn't even know you had.

Why is primary care so important?

Studies have shown that U.S. adults who see a primary care physician typically spend about 33% less on health care costs and have a 19% lower chance of dying prematurely. Essentially, scheduling regular appointments with a PCP has proven to not just be safer, but more cost-effective as well.

Why should I see a primary care doctor if I think I may need to see a specialist?

Primary care services performed at Smith Medical Group may be able to offer a different treatment plan, saving you money and time in the long run. Additionally, our doctors may be able to refer you to certain trusted specialists you wouldn’t otherwise have known about.

How often should I see my primary care provider?
