Why should I contact my primary care team first for specialty issues instead of going directly to the specialty area?

Your primary care team is your first point of contact for all of your health care needs. They know you and your health history and can coordinate any specialty care you may need. In some cases, they may be able to arrange an eConsult with a specialist or bring the right specialist into your primary care appointment to save you the hassle of scheduling separate appointments and taking more time away from work or other activities.
