Primary care offers a health care model that places you at the center of the process. Working with a skilled primary care provider allows you to receive reliable, top-quality care from a provider you get to know and trust.
Practitioners who specialize in primary care go through extensive training in all aspects of internal medicine. They learn how to deliver outstanding care across all phases of life for both women and men.
Your primary care provider acts as your personal health “coach” who ensures you get the care needed to thrive. They become an invaluable resource when you have questions or need guidance in any area of health and wellness.
Preventive health is a central focus within primary care. Routine annual physicals allow you to get the appropriate screenings and help assess your risk levels for chronic diseases. Immunizations help you build and maintain a thriving immune system, which serves you well if you encounter an infectious disease.
When an unexpected injury or illness arises, acute care services help you feel better as quickly as possible. Also called sick visits, these appointments focus on diagnosing your current set of symptoms and getting you on a path to relief.
If you have one or more chronic diseases, chronic disease management works closely with you to improve your readings and help you feel and function your best each day. Medication management is an essential part of that process.
From time to time, you may need specialized care. If the need arises, your primary care practitioner can help you find the right specialist for your unique set of needs.
Once you begin working with your specialized care team, your practitioner remains in close contact, providing information from your medical records as needed. Good communication with your specialist ensures continuity of care when you return to primary care.
Depending on the type of specialized medical services you need, you might come in to see your primary care provider more frequently once your treatment is underway or ends. Once your condition stabilizes, you can often return to annual visits.
