Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care involves comprehensive patient care, including preventive medicine, annual wellness exams, and disease screening. It also involves managing diseases such as:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis
  • Other chronic diseases
  • Fatigue or chronic pain
  • Thyroid problems and other hormone imbalances
  • Obesity
  • Depression and anxiety

The primary care providers at Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care take the time to get to know you. They use a holistic approach to treatment, choosing natural therapies over medications whenever possible. 

What happens during a primary care appointment?

Everybody is different, which is why the expert team at Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care personalizes each primary care visit to meet your unique needs.

When you arrive for an appointment, your provider weighs you and checks your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. 

They review your symptoms and medical history, and complete a comprehensive physical examination. Your doctor offers health screenings if you experience symptoms or are at risk of developing an acute or chronic disease. 

They might recommend blood tests, urine tests, allergy or asthma testing, or imaging procedures like X-rays to confirm or rule out medical conditions. Your doctor answers questions you may have about your health. 

Will I require treatment?

You might require personalized primary care treatment if you have an illness, disease, or chronic disease risk factors. Your Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care physician or physician assistant (PA) might recommend:

Lifestyle changes

Making lifestyle changes can reduce your risk of developing a disease or help you better manage a disease if you have one. Weight loss, a healthy diet, regular exercise, stress reduction, smoking cessation, and getting more sleep are examples.

Alternative therapies

The Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care team often considers natural, holistic therapies over medications when possible. For example, they may recommend dietary supplements, regenerative medicine, or massage to optimize healing and relieve pain.

Medications

Your doctor can prescribe medications to lower blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and other disease risk factors if lifestyle changes haven’t worked. They might recommend medicines to treat infections or offer symptom relief.

Wound care

The Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care staff is fully equipped to perform wound, burn, or fracture care if you or your child has an injury.

Specialist referrals

If you require extensive diagnostic testing, a minor surgical procedure, or the expertise of a specialist, your Omni-Med Family Care & Urgent Care doctor can refer you to a qualified specialist in your area.
