Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

A primary care provider is often the first medical contact for undiagnosed and general health concerns.

Primary care revolves around day-to-day curative care and medical services, preventive care, diagnostic testing, family healthcare, and a connection to a network of other qualified specialists when and if you need them.

Your primary care doctor can help you with most health complications or questions and utilizes numerous effective methods, so you can achieve better health and wellness, such as nutritional counseling, healthy lifestyle changes, casting for orthopedic conditions, and medications.

The AIM expert medical group also offers regular wellness and physical exams to monitor your current health.

You can prevent many diseases in the early phases, and preventive care is an integral part of primary care.

Make sure you stay up to date with your primary care screenings and checkups to help your provider identify any abnormalities that might otherwise go unnoticed. These checkups allow your provider to monitor your overall health.

Why would I need to see a primary care doctor?

If you’re experiencing pain, aches, or a chronic health problem, such as diabetes or high cholesterol, ongoing primary care is especially supportive and gives you the expertise of a medical doctor who is familiar with your health and your health history.

According to the Mayo Clinic, some of the most common reasons for primary care visits are back pain, joint disorders, and skin ailments, including acne, dermatitis, and cysts.

Primary care treats both acute and chronic illnesses and problems, such as:

  • A common cold or sickness
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Headaches
  • Sore throat
  • Infections
  • Orthopedic conditions
  • Gastrointestinal complications
  • Menopausal complications
  • A chronic health condition like an autoimmune disease or arthritis

The most common reasons for primary care visits aren’t typically life-threatening.

What tests do primary care doctors perform?

During your primary care visit, your doctor might order any one of the following tests:

  • X-Ray
  • MRI
  • Bloodwork
  • Blood pressure
  • Cholesterol

Some tests can be performed in-office for your convenience, and during your visit, you have plenty of time to ask questions, address concerns, and undergo any necessary testing.

Your primary care doctor discusses your treatment plan in detail and the available treatment options to help you determine what’s best for you.

The AIM providers develop lifelong doctor-patient relationships and offer highly personalized treatment plans.
