Dr. Jason Rice, a Primary Care physician at Loyola, encourages people to have regular visits with a primary care physician so that the patient has their medical baseline noted in their records. This is helpful especially as people get older. It's also important to have certain tests performed at different ages and to receive vaccines on time. He knows how important it is to help his patients understand why they might need a certain treatment. When patients understand why a certain approach is taken, they are more likely to follow through with treatment. The benefit of seeking treatment at Loyola is that it is an academic medical center with hundreds of specialists on hand should you need one.
