Primary Care Q & A

Harmony Health MD

What is primary care?

Primary care is the branch of medicine that deals with the disease prevention, health maintenance, patient education, and the management of both acute and chronic conditions.

Your primary care provider helps you monitor your health throughout your life, empower you to make the best decisions about your medical care, and collaborate with your other health specialists or providers.

At Harmony Health, your primary care physician is your partner in healthcare. Whether you have an immediate concern or a long-term problem, your doctor offers counseling, education, and care to help you make the most informed decisions.

What are common primary care services?

Your primary care physician offers a wide range of services to help you manage your health. Some of the most common reasons you might see a primary care doctor include:

  • Yearly physical examinations and wellness checkups
  • Management of chronic diseases, like diabetes or high blood pressure
  • Immunizations and vaccines
  • Care for acute conditions, like the flu or allergies

You can also visit your primary care provider if you have a minor health emergency or if you’re concerned about some aspect of your physical or mental well-being.

With services like nutritional counseling, diagnostic testing, and in-office medical procedures, you can get the care you need all in one place. Your doctor can refer you to a specialist or another provider, give you a prescription for medication, and offer you the tools and resources you need to get and stay healthy.

What are the benefits of primary care?

Without a primary care provider, it’s hard to manage your health and make the right decisions for your long-term well-being.

Most insurance carriers require you to have a primary care provider to coordinate your medical care, and choosing the right one ensures you have a partner and friend as you navigate different issues throughout your life.

A solid partnership with a primary care provider allows you to keep all of your medical records in one place, and it gives you and your family the opportunity to create trust and understanding with a physician who has your best interests at heart.
