Primary care services constitute most non-emergency healthcare needs. Primary care services are comprised of preventative health and wellness services as well as acute healthcare and the management of long-term conditions.
A primary care provider is meant to be your main source of healthcare, a reliable physician who provides non-urgent care and checkups as needed. A patient’s primary care physician can place their concerns and conditions into the broader context of a patient’s medical history due to a continuity of care. Primary care is designed to improve health outcomes, offer better access to healthcare, and lower costs.
When it comes to treating basic, acute illnesses or injuries, primary care is often a better alternative than going to the emergency room as it should be less time-consuming and less expensive.
There are various types of primary care services concerning different focuses of care and are available for patients of different ages. Family physicians treat patients of all ages and offer services to prevent, diagnose, and treat conditions.
Most family doctors perform a wide array of services such as immunizations, treatment, diagnosis, and minor surgery. Doctors of internal medicine do not treat children, but they provide health services to adults of all ages. Pediatricians treat babies, infants, children, and teenagers up to the age of 21.
Geriatricians specialize in the treatment of older adults and can provide treatment for age-related conditions as well as conditions not specifically age-related but more common in older adults. Geriatricians may integrate additional care providers for patients dealing with multiple conditions.
Obstetricians/gynecologists specialize in female reproductive health,childbirth pregnancy, postpartum issues, and menopause. Nurse practitioners can prevent, diagnose, and treat various conditions as well as create treatment plans, prescribe medications, and assist patients with the management of their care.
Physician assistants can provide many of the same services available to a doctor; however, they need a doctor to sign off on any medication they wish to prescribe. Check with your healthcare provider to ensure you are receiving the right medication through physician assistants.
Everyone in your family should have primary care. Whether an individual is in good health or not, consistent checkups and physical appointments allow for comprehensive and preventative care. In family medicine, doctors treat patients at all stages of life. With one provider, your whole family can see the same doctor and enjoy all the benefits. A family practitioner offers many benefits, including convenience and a desire to get to know your family and maintain a continuity of care.
And while individuals may wish to have their family members see age-specific care providers such as pediatricians for children and geriatricians for older adults and these are effective options, it is important to be aware that a family physician and primary care provider can care for patients of all ages.
A family doctor should be the first point of contact for preventative, acute, and chronic health needs. Some services provided by a family doctor include basic testing and assessments, ear, nose, and throat care, bone and joint care, eye care, lifestyle counseling, and mental and behavioral health. Patients may also receive immunizations from family physicians, as well as non-urgent emergency care. Routine checkups, sports and camp physicals, well-woman care, infant care, and elderly care are also available.
