Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is your first point of contact for your medical needs. Primary care physicians can specialize in family medicine or internal medicine, or they may specialize in geriatrics (aging people) or pediatrics (children). They provide a wide range of treatments to improve your health and coordinate your care with specialist providers when necessary.

Primary care physicians offer annual physical exams and wellness visits to monitor your overall health and often identify the early signs of health problems such as prediabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

You also see your primary care provider when you’re ill or develop symptoms of health issues like gastrointestinal conditions or hormonal problems.  

What should I expect during a primary care appointment?

During a general visit with your primary care provider, you begin with some paperwork. When you’re called back to the treatment rooms, a provider checks your height, weight, and blood pressure. Your primary care provider talks to you about your overall health and lifestyle and any health changes or new symptoms you’ve noticed.

They listen to your heart and lungs and examine your eyes, ears, nose, and throat. Your provider feels your abdomen for signs of abnormality or swelling in any of your organs. They may also order blood and urine tests to monitor your health. For example, the primary care providers at Low Testosterone & Weight Loss Center provide screenings for:

  • Cardiac health
  • Gastrointestinal health
  • Thyroid and hormone levels
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Cancer

You also have an opportunity to ask questions and get advice on how to improve your health and well-being.

How often should I have an appointment with my primary care provider?

In general, you should have an annual preventive health care appointment with your primary care provider. Your provider keeps records from your appointments and can quickly identify any changes in your health from year to year. You can also make an appointment to see your primary care provider if you get sick or develop a health concern that needs medical attention.
