At Metabolix Wellness we are a primary care provider. Primary care providers (or PCPs) are those physicians and Nurse Practitioners who provide comprehensive health care. This means they take care of a wide variety of problems--acute medical illnesses such as common colds, sinus infections, stomach problems, and rashes, for example, but also more chronic health problems such as thyroid problems, depression, asthma, high blood pressure, and diabetes.
Primary care providers also perform physicals and annual women's health care examinations, counsel their patients on healthy lifestyle choices, and recommend and prescribe birth control pills and other medicines. In sum, they provide total health care and work closely with specialists in other fields of health and medicine to keep their patients healthy.
