What is Primary Care?

Aim of Primary Care
The main purpose of primary care is to improve the health of the public by providing easy access to medical care. It also focuses on the whole individual rather than on the illness of a specific organ, system or disease. It aims to improve their entire health and wellbeing by preventing or solving any health problems that may be present or potentially present.
Hallmarks of Primary Care include addressing a large majority of personal health care needs, developing a sustained partnership with patients to achieve better health, better care, and lower costs. Primary healthcare professionals typically work with many different patients and have broad knowledge about various physical, psychological and social ailments that may affect them.
Our Integrative Primary Healthcare services include:
Primary Care Providers are excellent choices for your Primary Care Physician (PCP), as they can provide you a excellent level of care for a wide range of health issues. For situations that require specialized knowledge, a Primary Care Provider can connect you with specialists that have the expertise you need. We will work closely with these specialists to ensure that your needs are being met.
In many cases, our Wellness Homes have strong collegial relationships with many specialists that you may require over the course of your life. For instance, in situations where an individual has fallen and suffered an age-related or sports injury, we can prescribe an orthopedics consult or physical therapy with a provider we strongly recommend, such as Revolution Physical Therapy. We will partner with Revolution to ensure that you receive the kind of support you will need to prevent additional dizziness or balance issues that could lead to more sprains, strains, or related injuries.
