Primary Care


Primary care is the provision of integrated, accessible health care services by physicians who are accountable for addressing a large majority of personal health care needs, developing a sustained partnership with patients, and practicing in the context of family and community.

One part of primary care focuses on wellness and prevention. To keep you healthy and free of disease, your primary care doctor will likely:

  • Take a careful look at your health history to determine what risk factors you may face
  • Offer vaccinations to keep you from catching a disease
  • Perform screenings to catch health issues early
  • Coach you on lifestyle changes you can make to stave off illness in the future


Another part of primary care is acute healthcare. These are issues or injuries that may come on suddenly and typically don’t have a long-term impact on your health.

Your primary care physician’s office is the place you would go for treatment of issues like colds, twist ankles or back pain.

Primary care is also an excellent resource for helping you manage chronic, long-term conditions like diabetes, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia or asthma.

Your primary care provider can regularly monitor your condition. Because they work with you over a longer period, they can track changes in your health and help you decide if it’s time to see a specialist.

Additionally, your primary care provider is often aware of factors in your community that may affect your health. For, instance they’re kept up to date on illnesses that are sweeping through your community and will know if there’s an uptick in the number of Covid 19 or Influenza cases in your area.
