Primary Care Q&A

What is primary care?

Primary care is your first point of contact for your medical needs. It combines preventive health care services with treatments for acute and chronic health issues to help you stay as healthy as possible.

Why is primary care important?

Primary care is essential for several reasons. First, your primary care provider is your central resource for your medical needs. You see them regularly, which allows you to build a trusting relationship and your doctor to compile detailed records about your health.

With this shared history, your primary care provider can identify changes in your health and take prompt action to address them. Your doctor's detailed knowledge about you allows them to customize care plans to optimize your health.

What's included in primary care?

Primary care includes a comprehensive range of medical services, including:

Physical and wellness exams

Your annual physical is the foundation of preventive health care. It allows you and your physician to check in on your health and monitor key health indicators for any signs of health changes or problems. 

You can also have preventive health screenings, update prescriptions, and get advice for healthy living during your annual exams.

Health screenings

The team at DFW MDcare offers various health screenings to monitor your health, including blood pressure checks, complete blood panel lab tests, Pap smears, prostate checks, and other cancer screenings. 

Vaccines

Your primary care provider can also give you any necessary vaccines to protect your health, including TDap boosters and flu shots. Vaccines are critical to protecting your health as well as the health of your community.

Sick visits

If you're not feeling well or hurt yourself, the team at DFW MDcare can diagnose the root cause of your illness. Then your provider can prescribe medication to help your body fight off the disease or treat any injuries. 

Chronic disease management

The physicians also offer chronic disease management to help you live with conditions such as arthritis, high blood pressure, diabetes, or asthma with minimal disruption. 

They offer treatments and lifestyle advice to reduce your risk of complications so that you can maintain a healthy and active life.
