"Family Doctor First" Benefits Physical and Mental Wellness

doctor-patient chat

Millions of Americans are feeling pretty stressed these days, and it's not doing their hearts any good. In a worldwide Gallup poll, about 55% of U.S. respondents said they'd felt stress "a lot of the day" before… and a separate analysis found that a person with a stress disorder was 37% more likely to develop cardiovascular disease than those without the disorder.

Studies like these illustrate the close bond between mind and body, and illustrate why MedBen WellLiving emphasizes "family doctor first." When the patient builds a professional relationship with their primary care physician, they often feel more open to discuss stressful feelings.

In turn, if the physician detects the onset of heart disease, they're better situated to talk to the patient about its causes. Or if specialist care is required, a doctor that knows the patient can direct them to someone who best matches their personality and needs.

MedBen WellLiving helps your health plan promote the total benefits of the doctor-patient relationship. Get more information by contacting Vice President of Sales & Marketing Brian Fargus at 888-627-8683 or
