What Is Primary Care?
Most of us see our doctors annually for a physical exam and to discuss
any medications we might be talking or health concerns or questions we
might have. This is the most common example of primary care—the
regular exams and consultations we have with a physician to maintain and
improve our health.
Primary care can provide:
- Yearly physicals
- Preventative care
- Consultations on health goals or concerns
- Immunizations (seasonal and scheduled)
- Laboratory work
- Referrals to specialists
- Care for minor illnesses
Primary care is also considered the first point of contact for treatment
of serious illness or conditions. If a patient is experiencing symptoms
of something serious, a primary care provider can provide the needed referrals
to ensure the patient receives the care they need at Fayette County Memorial Hospital.
