What happens during primary care appointments?

During primary care appointments at Primecare Family Practice, you meet with a friendly specialist who checks your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They complete a physical exam to evaluate your eyes, ears, throat, breathing, heartbeat, and more. You might need a psychiatric evaluation if you have signs of a mental health condition. 

After undergoing diagnostic tests, your provider may recommend treatments like home remedies, lifestyle changes, dietary supplements, medication prescriptions, or seeing a specialist. You might choose vaccinations or preventive care options. Your provider follows up with you as needed to make sure your treatment works effectively. 


How often should I schedule primary care visits?

Schedule wellness exams at least once yearly as part of a primary and preventive care plan. You can also see a primary care provider at Primecare Family Practice if you get injured, become ill, struggle with a mental health disorder, need a sports or DOT physical, or have questions about your health and well-being.
