Primary Care

A primary care physician serves as the patient’s first point of entry into the health care system and as the continuing focal point for all needed health care services. With a focus on wellness and prevention, acute healthcare, as well as chronic long-term conditions, primary care physicians are vital to the health of our community.

Comprehensive care

Primary care physicians are educated in all areas of medicine, which gives them the skills to care for people of all ages. Beyond just treating your aches and pains, primary care physicians are expert in:

  • Disease prevention and screenings.
  • Diagnoses and treatment of many types of illnesses.
  • Providing preventive medicine to help you maintain your health.
  • Managing chronic conditions.
  • Injury care.
  • Coordination of your care.
  • Caring for you as a whole person, including your mental, physical and emotional health.
  • Some primary care physicians even see newborns to geriatric patients.

Health checkups: Why you need them

If you are someone who typically schedules a visit only when you’re sick, you’re missing out on something that can make a big difference in your health: regular checkups. Checkups are a chance to update your provider about any changes in your health. Then, your provider can suggest lifestyle changes and possible treatment options.

These visits are a chance for your provider to make sure you’re up-to-date on recommended screening tests or vaccines. That matters because screening tests can help find diseases—from diabetes to certain cancers—early, when they’re often easier to treat. Vaccines can help keep you safe from serious and preventable illnesses like tetanus and shingles.
