What are primary care visits?
Primary care visits are the starting point for all your health and wellness needs. These visits are a chance for your doctor to gather more information about your health and how well your bodyâ€™s systems are functioning.
Annual physical exams are a great way to ensure you stay healthy and get the care you need as you move through the phases of your life. Your practitioner gathers information on your vital signs, including your heart rate, breathing function, blood pressure, and basic neurological function. This is also your chance to discuss any changes youâ€™ve noticed since your last visit or any concerns you have about your overall health.
What if I experience symptoms of illness?
Your primary care physician is here to help if you encounter any symptoms or signs of distress. Simply come in for a diagnostic exam and a customized treatment plan. In many cases, you can begin treatment during the visit or shortly thereafter.
In the event you need more in-depth testing or specialized care, your primary care physician can help you find a local resource to take care of those needs. Your doctor will also communicate with your extended care team to share information about your health history and coordinate your care once treatment ends.
Having a trusted medical professional to turn to can make it far easier to manage a sudden illness or injury. Building that bond is easier when you arenâ€™t in pain or otherwise distressed. Thatâ€™s one of the many benefits of finding a primary care physician with whom you feel comfortable.
