Comprehensive Primary Care Q & A

What is primary care?

Primary care is the first-contact care you receive from a doctor, who has a wide understanding of the human body and all of its many complexities. The physician works with you to fully understand the problem, as well as its effects on your life. When it comes to your care, he leaves no stone is left unturned as your doctor strives to find the best solution for your unique situation.

Through vigilant monitoring, expert guidance, and coordination of treatments, your doctor is able to ensure that every member of your family, from toddlers to seniors, gets the best care possible.

The medical world, with all of its subspecialties, can be an amazingly confusing environment, and this is where good primary care is critical. The healthcare providers at Nevada Family Care & Wellness Center take the time to understand your concerns and makes sure you’re aware of what’s happening every step of the way.

What conditions does primary care cover?

As your first contact, a doctor is an expert at diagnosing and uncovering potential health problems. This means that the doctor sees, and provides guidance for, a host of medical issues that range from acute injuries to more complex chronic diseases and conditions, such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular issues, such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Respiratory problems, such as asthma
  • Arthritis — the practice offers joint and trigger point injections
  • Cancer

This group of health concerns is far from comprehensive as the number of medical conditions is almost impossible to list. Which is exactly why a good primary care provider is paramount. The doctor understands the human body, your medical history, and what the symptoms mean, all of which enable him to zero in on a cause to get you started on an appropriate treatment plan as quickly as possible.

To help the doctors best manage your health, Nevada Family Care & Wellness offers in-house electrocardiograms (EKGs), ultrasound, and purified protein derivative (PPD) testing for tuberculosis.
