Primary care provides a gateway to all your everyday health needs. Your primary care practitioner helps you stay well and avoid ill health. You also visit them for diagnosis and treatment when you’re sick or injured.
If they identify anything that needs further investigation, your provider can take blood, urine, or other samples for lab testing. Or they may refer you for X-rays or other diagnostic imaging procedures. You can then receive the most effective treatment for your health problem.
If necessary, your provider can refer you to a specialist, such as a cardiologist for heart disease or a gastroenterologist for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).
The only time when you would bypass primary care is if you have a life-threatening emergency, such as severe bleeding that won’t stop, extensive burns, or heart attack and stroke symptoms. In these cases, you must call 911 or get to your nearest hospital emergency room immediately.
Services the Primary Medical Physicians, LLC team provides include:
Urgent care covers acute problems like abdominal pain or flu symptoms and minor injuries that require prompt attention.
Chronic diseases persist for many months or years — often a lifetime. Conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure require ongoing monitoring and treatment to prevent potentially life-threatening complications.
Older people suffer from more health problems and are vulnerable to fractures and infections.
If you take medications regularly, it’s important to have them reviewed to ensure your prescriptions are current, safe, and effective.
Patients with chronic pain conditions ranging from fibromyalgia and arthritis to cancer can benefit from pain management services, including joint injections, medical marijuana, and cryotherapy.
