Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

A primary care practice is your first point of contact for preventive care services and any health concern. Primary care doctors offer health care for acute illnesses such as strep throat or the flu, and monitoring your health condition over time for the entire family.

Primary care doctors specialize in recognizing any body or mind abnormalities from everyday health ailments to chronic conditions. Common services provided through primary care facilities include:

  • Routine physical exams
  • Prescription medications
  • Treatment for minor illnesses and injuries
  • Diagnosis and management of chronic conditions
  • Preventive health screenings for common health problems

As a primary care practice of doctors with over 30 years of experience, the Medico team treats the whole family, diagnosing and customizing treatments to the unique needs of every individual.

Do I need a primary care doctor?

When you see the same doctor for your routine annual physicals, questions about your health, and when you are sick, your doctor gets to know you, making it easier to detect and diagnose health conditions during the early stages. Your primary care doctor helps you maintain good health and coordinates health care across specialists as needed.

A study from the Council on Graduate Medical Education also shows having a primary care doctor saves you money, too. People with primary care doctors have better health and spend less money on their health care services than those without a primary care doctor. 

What conditions do primary care doctors treat?
