For example, at your annual physical, the team may find that you have high blood pressure. By intervening and providing treatment, as well as diet and lifestyle recommendations, early on, you can avoid potentially life-threatening consequences, such as a stroke.
One of the main roles of primary care is to treat you when you’re sick. They use your medical history, tests, and exams to determine why you aren’t feeling well and what they can do to treat you. During sick visits, your doctor asks you questions about your symptoms to help narrow down the right diagnosis.
Your doctor can diagnose and treat a wide range of acute and chronic conditions, including:
Along with sick care services, the team provides comprehensive preventive health care through physical exams and checkups. At these visits, they may recommend additional testing, such as a rapid strep test, blood test, urinalysis, or X-ray imaging.
The goal of every primary care provider is to keep you healthy now and in the future by treating you when you’re sick and helping you stay on top of your health when you’re well.
