Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is an area of medicine that manages your overall health and wellness needs. Your primary care provider serves as your first point of contact for all health issues and concerns. This includes your general preventive care as well as unexpected illnesses and symptoms.

Primary care providers receive specialized medical training so they can prevent, diagnose, and treat any acute or chronic health condition. They also focus on disease prevention, providing education, health screenings, and vaccinations to optimize your overall health. 

At Quality Primary Care, the team takes an integrative approach to care, which means instead of focusing on your disease or symptoms, they take a whole-body, whole-person approach to managing your health.

What can I expect during a primary care appointment?

The specifics of your primary care appointment depend on the reason for your visit. However, the team takes a holistic approach to care and conducts an in-depth evaluation so they fully understand your health concerns and needs.

During your appointment, your provider asks detailed questions about your health concerns and symptoms, reviews your medical and family history, and asks about your general lifestyle habits, such as your diet, exercise, and stress levels.

Then, they perform a physical exam. If it’s needed, they may request diagnostic testing to confirm or rule out a diagnosis or screen for health conditions. 

After your exam, your provider spends time talking to you about their findings and provides education and recommendations specific to your health needs.
